Maybe he wasn't. But it was a risk to call out adalia as scum, without being sure. The other case meant his partner died while recruiting adalia, so he would have been sure.
What risk are you referring to?
[...] Now, his mason naming post was for me a big reason to town read Bookwyrm. He got so much heat for it, and there's just no way scum would invite that. [...]
Was the heat he got really that much? Even within the context of that point in the game, he got mchack on his back, as expected, a non-counting vote by adaliabooks, a question by dedoporno (the wording of which I found odd back then) and some arguing but no vote, a couple of exploratory questions from me, a vote from Krypsyn with no explanation, a vote from ZFR, and finally one from trentonlf. flubbucket moved on him after trentonlf unvoted, and it ended there as things moved into other directions.
As for the heat on adaliabooks, I'm also not sure it was all that much either. He never got more than three votes, and Leonard03 got much closer to getting lynched before Bookwyrm627 came on.
That's not to say that this clears Bookwyrm627 as scum/adaliabooks scum-buddy; the last part of his post #1221 fits him quite well as either alignment. Just that the heat he got is of the level I have him more than capable of managing with not much effort, and turning things around for him and his team as either alignment.
He didn't ask in the game thread about this. (What he asked was the other side, if everyone on the recruiting scum team would know that the recruitment succeeded.)
But if he knew that his recruiter was Hunter (instead of adalia), then he'd know for certain that adalia still had a recruitment left, and was worth protecting. [...]
That's the question I meant by "asking anyway in the game thread"; sorry if it wasn't clear.
However, on rereading and checking back, based on Lifthrasil's reply to my and his question about access to the scum QT by converts, and the amended setup document, if he was converted N1, then he couldn't be sure who converted him, even if that info was in the scum QT. But, as he himself said, he could have been shaking hands with this scum-buddy in the game thread, and they could have communicated the, at the time, status of their team (have to look closer to his interactions with adaliabooks).
In the case of scenario F, he could have still asked the question as original Mutant to (continue to) appear uninformed town - you yourself go with "these scum wouldn't have cause to question Lift about the intricacies of which scum would know what", which basically takes him off of your suspects list.
adaliabooks first, and then Bookwyrm627, disagreed and kept arguing with mchack as to who'd have attempted a conversion N1, and why. At the time, I thought their argument made sense, and we all more or less went along with it all game long, but what if mchack was right? What if the Mutant team acted the way mchack was saying, and publicly argued the opposite?
Do you have solid reasons to exclude Bookwyrm627 in scenario F?
[...] So there's nothing in a mafia context that INS could stand for? [...]
That's not what I meant.
From the results I've turned up, there are two definitions that would fit within a mafia context in a literal and serious manner, one that could in a metaphorical but still serious manner, and another two that could mean that he's avoiding a straightforward reply regarding his votes and suspicions in a goofy/fun making way.
From my experience with flubbucket, it could be any one of them equally, more so with his record in this game, hence my uncertainty.
But I see that flubbucket already gave an explanation, and may even be sincere about it.
And thanks for the wishes; unfortunately the treatment isn't working as intended/expected, so back to the doctor on Monday.
[...] why not just push some other player over the edge for a mislynch? [...]
As adaliabooks buddy, wouldn't that be what you'd do without deviating from your previous play and reads? In this context, wouldn't what you did with the FoS on those three, and your vote on Leonard03 be inline with your play? Leonard03 had already gotten plenty of heat before you came on and declared to be almost caught up, and at the time I had zero votes, and he had two. You put him back at L-3, where he stayed until Day's end when ZFR and Krypsyn moved off my wagon and on to his before trentonlf unexpectedly quickly hammered him (and trentonlf is no Mason as I thought; hmm...).
Granted, we all ended up mis-lynching Leonard03, but that's not exactly something that puts you in a better light. Or is it?
[...] Scum!me could have found an excuse to bow to Mchack's focus, considering how hellbent he ws on lynching one of Adalia, HSL, or me. Since I'd know that HSL wasn't on my scum team, then lynching him would keep both Adalia and I unlynched [...]
[...] that would probably have been enough drive to get him lynched, considering how close he was on D1.
Do you think that bowing to mchack's focus, and even "grudgingly" accepting my lynch, would have made you look less suspect, after the way you had been reading mchack and me all game long?
[...] Adalia didn't even try to deflect; he still has an ace up his sleeve in the form of an unsuspected teammate while we hunt Krypsyn's conversion, and as a bonus he might survive to convert someone. [...]
Based on the game thread, I was anything but unsuspected. In that context, this argument doesn't clear you from being adaliabooks buddy, as you've been quite instrumental in that "while we hunt Krypsyn's conversion".
[...] With HSL already a mutant, and me broadcasting all over the thread about Flub/Trent/Gogtrial being masons, that leaves ZFR and me as recruitment choices. I could see him going either way when picking between me and ZFR for a recruitment. ZFR is the mason, so obviously Adalia didn't fail to recruit me. [...]
Do you really think that I'd trust your reads, let alone to the point of basing our N3 action on them were I adaliabooks
buddy? I think you're giving yourself too much credit here in what looks to me more like an attempt to self-pres on me. Unless you want to claim that you're actually scum-reading me now, in which case I'd like you tu put down your arguments, and not just an alternative scenario to steer attention elsewhere, and get yourself off the hook.
So, why only on me, and not flubbucket or trentonlf? At this point it's clear that none of them are Masons, and none of the arguments you're using here hold less against them; I'd say that the "unsuspected teammate" one fits even better. Yet, you're not taking a single look into their direction. So, I can't help but wonder - could it be that you're counting on me being an easier mis-lynch? After all, you've pointed out plenty of times how close to being lynched I've been so far.

So, do you care to share what is your compelling reason/evidence for this vote?
