I am glad you posted your thoughts :). I am a little confused about the above sentence though. Do you mean it was too easy to find stoicsentry guilty? Also, the idiom (am guessing) about 'the jumper' is new to me. Does it mean that the fact that it seemed so easy makes you take notice of it?
Yea, that was the intended meaning, though counting both ways if that makes sense. Let me try to elaborate. When the stoic thing by NFY first popped up I was reading it and thinking huh, strange - but I don't really agree with it and its the potential easier target for a lynch, due to him being new. Then they continued to debate and I was somewhat following along in my reduced activity state and then Stoic made his post 911which was kinda where I began siding along side NFY.
Let me try to explain it, and as I've just reread it I am rather certain my siding with NFY steams from my own experience in a prior game.
The Damuna stuff is discussed and mention quite a bit by Stoic, and then NFY in my opinion makes a humor post about it, point out the little need for stoic to be considering it as he is. He choses to respond to them - not by answering the question NFY actually said, but by stating what he is mad about right now
. Now that says to me that he is still thinking about it and not that he is answering a question, as he is really not.
Now NFY makes what I would say a similar post as before, a humoring of him and stating that he shouldn't be mad about wasting time, since stuff can still be used.
Then we enter the more troubled time, since Stoic ask about the "at it again" and NFY replies this time connecting it with more of an accusation. (I somewhat tend to agree with since he didn't answer a question of hers, he wrote his current stuff he was "mad" about and I saw little need to do that). Now begins the point where my siding with NFY begins, when Stoic claims to only have answered direct questions (Which I already stated I disagree with).
Some more discussions, Twilightbard chimes in with a good post, that down adjusted my view of stoic a bit (chalking it up to new and aggressive, but his reply still felt at odds with me and Baz also comments about some of the trouble with it). NFY is starting some talk about Xzyem, and this is were Stoic then come in and comments positive about Xzyem, now you, without any reason. When asked about it by NFY he gives a reply (we're now at the post 911) where reasons that since he didn't vote him he didn't have a change of heart.. (What he did write however did show a change of opinion). Then follows what made me fairly certain Stoic is scum.
He begins the case with the "questions" NFY asked him.. well she didn't ask him direct questions, nor did he answer those she actually wrote. Making that argument of his see very strange to me. Then he makes a completly wrong accusation attributing something NFY said in post 900.. which was made by me and didn't mention anything of the sort, nor did any of those close to it. Then he returns to those "supposed" questions... as a third argument. His final one is one big bullshit about Xzyem argument, basically stating he sees no reason for why he should change his opinion and what he could gain from it.. the argument makes little sense and he even mentions one of the best reasons as to why he could have done it, then just shrugs it of, even though it would be a decent strategy for a mafia to do in regards of a fellow mafia... finally ending his case stating the same reasons which one part is false (at least false attributed to post 900) and the other is plain wrong.
So yea - the terrible case with the false arguments makes me consider him scum. (And I can't see how is is NFY who has the bad case, since in reality she was the one defending, not the attacker in the general picture).
Since I already suspected NFY in the stoicsentry/NFY debate, I just lumped all of you into the 'suspected scum category' when you decided to support her with weak or strange (at least to me) arguments.
Well now you got mine, I don't think I ever got my thoughts down properly, but now I took the time to it.. and by doing so realized something I could see as a connection. But lets wait with that (if it is as I think it is, then I bet you know what I mean) ;)
