Only time it's worth voting for lurkers is when they seem like they don't want to draw attention to themselves, looking for a good person to target, jumping on a bandwagon, etc. What's the point of playing if you aren't gonna bother looking for bad guys, just bad players?. Unless, like I said, you don't care.
vote for her for lurking and jumping onto a bandwagon, so I don't see what your problem is. Her first post was to jump onto the KrO2 bandwagon started by Tim and Snark. Tim even claimed that his vote was based on nothing, and he did it just to see everyone's reactions, so Cameroni101 should have even less of a reason to want to vote for him. To her credit, she said she agreed with Snark, not Tim, but that looks like a convenient vote for a lurker to me.
I kind of assumed this was talking about lynching lurkers in general, which is a subject UniqueScreenname and I (and DBC?) agree on. Nobody has said that cameroni's actions in particular didn't look scummy.
Some people I think are scummy to various degrees:
I've gotten kind of mixed feelings from lynx. This post
lynx wrote:eculc is right, that was very suspicious from cameron. He lurks until a bandwagon begins to form and jumps on with no explanation!
I do agree that KrO2 has been a bit squirmy but won't vote now as I don't want to give cameron ammunition.
If she is scum, she presumably knows who town are so we'll have to be careful about any lynch.
struck me as off. Mere agreement (not as bad as cameroni, but still just agreement), an excuse for not voting for me, and a kind of confusing last line. The explanation he gave later made sense but didn't seem immediately connected to the "if she is scum" bit. The reason I'd feel better about lynx if he had voted for me there is that if cameroni were scum looking through past votes to find a reason to agree with, she already had things from Snark and Tim. Taking stuff from lynx as well wouldn't make it less obvious. This is kind of what I might expect from a scumbuddy trying to not vote for KrO2 without it looking suspicious, so that's what I'd suspect if it weren't for the fact that KrO2 is me. There's also the mass claim idea earlier. It took some mental gymnastics for me to come up with a case where suggesting it might *not* be scummy.
I was going to try to defend flarpfreak by saying that he's new and maybe he's only used to two factions (that was true of me before I started playing on this board) but this isn't his first game, so I'm not going to say that. And that FoS is legitimately looking strong. He has also been lurking worse than cameroni.
fshfood hasn't posted much, but her point against UniqueScreenname looks pretty good. I'd like to point out, though, that she agreed with it in the original context, when it was used as an argument *against* Snark revealing his MI. fshfood responded to that by agreeing that it was a strong reason to keep those secret because there could be unfriendly people with powers like that. I'm not responding to the argument "that sounds like a power scum would have, so FoS US" (if that's an argument anyone's making?), but I do think it's strange of fshfood to agree with it and then bring it up later as being scummy.
I haven't seen eculc mentioned much, and I think he deserves to be, at least a little. What little information he's posted has mainly been unsupportedly saying that he hasn't found me scummy, which makes me feel good but still doesn't give reasons. Also, what's up with explicitly saying "your vote looks like a pressure vote"? I'm not pushing for an eculc lynch by any means, but he shouldn't get away with teh lurking.
I don't really want to pick one of New User/UniqueScreenname to Suspect, because this could be two townies escalating from "I disagree" to "You SUCK" to "Vote: Him." If that happens it could mean they're both wrong, but not necessarily that one of them is scum. I wanted to get this out there before people start picking sides.
If we were at deadline now, I'd probably vote for cameroni, but I'd like to see more content from these people before I vote because voting for a lurker still seems wrong to me.
