Look I had a busy week and when the "3 names" strategy was proposed I didn't have a lot of time to go back and re-read the posts because of the time pressure, so I just picked the 3 that I wouldn't /mind/ lynching - which might have been different to who I would have picked had I read through everything more thoroughly.
I didn't go for carey in case he got replaced (and i did state that i wouldn't vote for him if a replacement was possible because he's most likely town). didn't go for snark because, even though he went after CF (whom I believe is town), snark did have some good (and frequent) posts so in that sense, more valuable than matt. I didn't like matt's pseudo-analysis and at that point I hadn't suspected wam at all because I didn't pay much attention to him.
right now, people on my suspects list (from a process of elimination):
- assuming that everyone who voted wam's town
- i know myself and snark are town
- timm is likely to be town because he replaced carey
So going back:
Kro2 votes for matt and indirectly pushes for matt's lynch. when he sees that people are going for wam, Kro2 asks
what happens if there is no majority?
- thereby already planning for the eventuality of there being a tie between wam and possibly matt.
For anyone who hasn't voted yet or wants to consider switching from wam to matt96*,
I was thinking earlier about what we could find out from a Matt lynch, and I remembered one point earlier where he discounted the possibility that any of the most active players could be scum. So if he turns out scum, then aside from being pretty good evidence in favor of Tim being town, it's also evidence in favor of one of Chickenfish/Snark/Mostlynormal being scum. And since there'd only be one scum left, and I'm still fairly convinced of "if Chickenfish then fearless," then that leaves Snark and Mostlynormal. This absolutely is not definitive of course, so someone let me know if I'm stretching too much. I'd prefer someone not mentioned above so we can try to avoid conflict of interest, but I'm not about to tell people not to post.
Again, he brings up the idea of switching from wam to matt and starts listing what we can gain from a matt lynch. In the next sentence, he circumstantially FOS's CF & snark who have been the most active players, as well as MN who has indicated that he didn't trust wam.
Next, I vote for matt.
Shortly after that, wam votes for matt but then unvotes when he sees the matt-bandwagon isn't building momentum. Votes for MN instead. Then MN votes for wam (probably to save himself) - at this point, Kro2 could switch and force a tie - but that would be a little bit /too/ obvious. And then he said he thought about hammering wam - why didn't he? Earlier he said he was ok with /either/ a matt lynch or a wam lynch.
So it looks like wam is about to be lynched. I feel like if Tim had had more time to convince us, it might have been Mostlynormal instead. I was considering hammering, just in case I miscounted the votes and wam could switch his vote to MN and tie it, but that was probably just me being paranoid. Anyway, I'll be on until deadline just in case of shenanigans.
sounds like a desperate/hopeful scum buddy.
I know this doesn't paint a good light on me at all, because It would just come across as me attacking kro2 out of desperation - and there is a good chance i'm completely off the mark. I realise I haven't been very helpful and have said a lot of wrong things. But I really am town. And I guess the only difference between kro2 and myself is that I have not tried to prevent a wam lynch, whereas kro2 has been subtly trying to stop it without seeming too obvious (at least that's how I see it)
