I don't know if this makes so much sense. Jesse didn't seem to be saying much except that he thought it a good idea to possibly lynch the ICs, which actually doesn't bode too well for you; perhaps you killed Jesse to try to protect yourself from that line of reasoning.
Yeah, you're right. I actually hadn't reread Jesse's posts when I said that; going back shows me that all Jesse did was suggest that one or more of the ICs were mafia (which I don't blame him for, I sure thought MaJ was) and then question Felltir's vote on MaJ after Jesse himself had just unvoted. Hmmm.
Actually, reading back those Day 1 posts is making me suspicious. These two in particular don't sit well with me:

Vote: MaJ (pending feeling like an idiot later)
I added the bold for emphasis. I don't know about you guys, but this reads like a threat to me, and not some sane townie logic. Nobody else at that point was holding me responsible for MaJ... Heck, it wasn't my fault I was the first vote on him. But here CV seems intent on getting me lynched if MaJ turns up townie, which would be incredibly convenient were he scum...

It would have been BEYOND unlikely that the mods would allow both of the IC players to be the mafia together. I kind of see where Felltir is coming from that MaJ and I were accusing each other quite a bit, but I still think that theory is kind of farfetched. It's possible it was just an excuse to bandwagon on MaJ, while appearing to have a well-reasoned plan.
...Then again, even I think I may be overanalyzing all of this. Once you play enough Mafia, you can get vibes about the other players and compare to how they usually play... but nobody in this game is used to anyone's playing style (except me and MaJ of course), so my scumdar is not working so well this round. Oh well, maybe somebody will gain something from my rather vague analysis. Here's hoping!
