Very little, in a beautiful illustration why townies really should never lie. We do know, however, that the "list of four people" most definitely was
a lie, and from this I infer that so was the claim that of these (non-existent) four, Rodzaju only had my name.
I must say, this somewhat worries me - we do not know his list of four was a definate lie. I agree with your stance that we must look upon all Rod has said with great doubt, but saying something is 100% untrue is not something you can do. Why? Simple, IT HAS NEVER BEEN DISPROVEN!
And don't fling the flavour at me, I've read it and it makes no such statement that he had no list of more than two. It said he had two listed, nothing else.
Why do I take this up? Because what you're actually doing is claiming ViolatorX is a poor mod - denying or confirming that Rod had more than two in any way would be handing out information for no reason - had ViolatorX confirmed Rod had a list of 4, people would be instantly aware there were two other power roles out there with negative modifiers. By denying it, ViolatorX would be influencing theories of how many power roles there are and if they hold any modifiers.
The list was NEVER DISPROVEN so do not say it was!
Now... Onto something else. I'm slightly interested in the whole ordeal with Robb, but it seems to have subsided greatly, I was hoping more would have come of it.
Then there's TB who has come up quite a lot lately, in contrast to his previous involvement - I assume you have more time on your hands now?
I feel I have too much to comment on, and I'm feeling quite confused at the moment, so I'll jump to another irk of mine, then respond to Red_Baron's parculiar retort to nmillar.
The usage of the phrase "it is our job as town to hunt scum" or deviations thereof. This annoys me a LOT. Yes, it's true, I'm not arguing that, but it has been mentioned so fucking much in this game, and the most interesting part is - it seems to pop up mostly when people wish to end discussions.
Here's why I think discussions of multiple mafia and potential night action scenarios CAN be useful. I, myself, find them mostly time consuming, but they can be informative - they help you paint a picture of how the player is, how he reacts and what he thinks. If someone has discussed possibly night action scenarios, and his theory is later discovered to be true, how would most of you react? With great suspecion, I'm sure. So what does it ultimately do? Help us find scum, really.
The same for multiple mafia, and unlike Red_Baron says, I'm not really against talking about it, I just do not believe in it (Remember, besides poking the hornet's nest, I also like to present multiple theories, because they are ALL possible in one way or the other!)
This brings me to Red_Baron's post #1099.
Notice the tone he takes. He seems aggravated, annoyed even. Kinda desperate for getting the entire discussion about mutliple mafia gone. See what I said about these discussions? They can be lucretive, and Red_Baron's post made me highly suspecious of him - ESPECIALLY since he keeps mentioning "We must hunt scum, not discuss useless theories" (Paraphrased, don't kill me!), the post seems so emotional it appears to me like nmillar hit the entire situation spot on...
EVERY discussion allows for slips, and EVERY slip allows for town to hunt scum that much more effectively - always remember that when you attempt to stop discussions simply because you find them inconvinient. You desire to stop them might just be the slip everyone is waiting for. unvote vote Red_Baron
If this sounds confusing in anyway, please tell me and I will try to elaborate :p (I do feel slightly confused right now)
