dimochka, I’ll leave that vote there for a little while to make sure, and unvote tomorrow morning. If we get an extension, I’ll unvote tomorrow morning anyway, but I’ll wait until 24 hrs before deadline.
Let’s see, where to start? Anyone talk about me me me today?

(I don’t particularly care about the mechanics of your vote in this instance; I’m interested in why you would call out a mistake/slip on Znirk’s part and then unvote him, especially when he just voted for you.)
I would like LaserGuy to answer this too.
I was voting SDK at the time, IIRC. Znirk voted for me, which automatically moved my vote from SDK to Znirk. I didn't really want to vote Znirk, so I unvoted him when I had the opportunity.
Why “Unvote Znirk” at all? Why not just “unvote”? Or vote for someone else? Were you trying to communicate your voting power to someone?

Role playing fun which fulfills my post restriction (quite well in this case). But don’t worry, I’m over it. Happy?

I think you have that backwards. Scum!Bessie would be very happy to sit back and let everyone rubber stamp her townie and put her at the top of their town lists based on meta and an unquestioned claim. Town!Bessie should be quite suspicious of some people's motivations.

Reasons. And since you will label them wine anyway, I’ll save you the time and skip this one.
bessie wrote:Um, do you really think that the reason I want to see SDK’s response to the last three pages of posts that he’s been away for, is that I want him to rescue me?
Why was your preference to wait until he returned before replying to me then?
I’m going to be generous and chalk this question up to overeager newbie town, and I’ll explain because why not. SDK in his opening post claimed this:
SDK wrote:Are you asking this because bessie is town? Because she is. Good to know that someone else got that confirmation in their role PM too.
He could have later claimed that this was one of his antics, but he didn’t. He doubled down.
SDK wrote:The proof of bessie's innocence lies in my role PM, though I will give no further details on that for the moment.
Now, his motivations have been analyzed to death, including by me here
. What it boils down to is that this was a pretty unambiguous statement, he didn’t leave himself a lot of freedom to change it later. If SDK is town, he needs to stand by this claim. He can’t let me be lynched, and he has really painted himself into a corner if he is scum.
Maybe he realized this, because he tested the waters a little here.
SDK wrote:I will say this, if it puts your mind at ease: My role PM does not explicitly state that bessie is town. My role interacts with bessie in a way that points to her being town as very likely.
If SDK is scum, D1 is no problem for him, bessie is predictably the towniest person in the game, as carefully calculated by Sabrar here
. But D2 bessie’s towniness is called into question, and her ranking begins to slip (if you’re interested I’m sure Sabrar can work out my new score). I’m quite curious as to what SDK will say to this. As shown, he can’t really back off. He needs to stick by his claim or he risks looking scummy. Because of Game specific Rule #12.
There are no alignment-changing mechanisms
I really wanted SDK to post, and I didn’t want to explain this to you, but it probably doesn’t matter anyway. Scum!SDK is not going to make a stupid obvious mistake.
Oh, by the way, I beileve you have some pending questions too.

Why do you not consider this scum hunting? Do you believe that to qualify as scum hunting one must reach the conclusion of scum on the player analyzed?
Ninja'd back soon.
