You are reiterating a question I already asnwered before. Refer to that response. Also, who is going over the same thing now?
only because you haven't answered it yet! but ok, let's reiterate yet again
the question being:
[...] That's not AI on it's own of course, but it may have been the self-preservation instict kicking in to not stick out. [...]
Does the self-pres instinct kick in only when one's scum?
Probably no, but it probably kicks harder when one is. [...]
Would you say that it's still probably so even if one were a town PR?
simple question really, don't wann go over it again but you said you answered already and I should refer to that response - So here's your "answers" so far:
I won't be discussing power roles. I suggest you don't either, unless it becomes very necessary.
They may not have an active power but they do have a power which is important to have and to keep in secret for as much as possible. I don't know about the strategies adalia is referring to, even though I do have some ideas, but either way, unless it's necessary I don't think it's a good idea to discuss them since somethinig or everything might come out in the process. Since you insist on clearing that up let's take a look at a hypothetical situation ...
I think I answered. Not sure what else you want to hear.
??? you answered by not answering. That is your answer? Is it really that hard to say whether it's yes I would (because...) or no I wouldn't (because...)? Why?
oh I don't think he does. He wasn't speculating wildly who is PR, you are. Isn't dedo's psst don't talk about power roles when asked whether he thinks a PR might also have as good a reason to get defensive as scum, pretty easy to answer without speculating about who has a PR? And yet you both did. One hypothetical the other for real.
For me it's you and dedo coming off pretty scummy, and after you painting my worm joke as a slip now comes this, I'm not at all sure your town anymore.
Isn't your incessant saying "oh I've figured this game out but pssst can't tell - it only helps scum" a clear call for recruitment? (which scum would love to be. recruited)
No, he wasn't wildly speculating. He very clearly suggested the reason you might be defensive was because you had a PR.
Asking the question at all could only have one purpose, to suggest that was an alternative reason for your behaviour. I've already covered why he might want to do that, and I'm leaning towards the first option.
that would be:
Everyone backs off you (which makes me believe Hyper may be your buddy)
And has everyone backed off after hyper asked that question? (in #240 his last post btw 15 hours ago in which he engaged 7 people by quoting and asked an 8th one questions w/o quote)
at that point I had two votes yours and trents.
trent went off to vote krypsyn in #261. Presumably because kryps hadn't answered his questions to give them more weight. But you think that was HSLs doing?
and you went off 4 posts later in #265 to go after flub for him maybe having "worked out some of the things about this game that I have too". That HSLs doing right there?
But this still makes HSL my scumbuddy? because everyone went off my back? you serious again?
And here it comes, you're backpedalling on your town read on me so you can legitimately vote me given the chance. Another typical scum move, you're really hitting it out of the park here.
yes, yes. textbook scum I am. sure. Because when I had no reason to find you scummy, I didn't do (you had a few posts I found town like #50 and were generally a funny guy and only because you found me scummy on serious gut feeling, doesn't mean you have to be scum. As town you wouldn't know I'm town so I can't hold it against you really) but that changed when you painted my joke as a scum slip, which after writing it down in #254 can't really be anything but malevolent. it's not an easy mistake to make.
And it changed even more after your post #271 where you quite schizophrenicly say that talking power roles is bad and evil and then do it yourself trying to paint HSL as scum without any reason other than him asking a simple question. Ever occured to you to talk to HSL before jumping to those conclusions? You weren't even involved in that conversation at the time but dropping that bomb in the middle of a conversation I had with dedo.
It was a bit much to go on thinking you might be town and if it goes on like that, then yes you shouldn't be surprised by a vote from me.
I'm not even going to dignify that last bit with an answer, but you should certainly think more about the implications of that kind of thinking.
the you asking for recruitment? it is kinda obvious, I think but I wondered, which it was mason or scum asking. now I definitly have you swinging scum.
Tell you what: Tonight should I get nightkilled, I think it's kinda obvious people should (and hopefully will) look at you. Because then they'll see my alignment in the flip and can judge our conversation again from that point of view.
