It feels like being sweated by the cops
Yeah that's a bit the point. Reminder :
1° Your species is special, because there are members in it who decide to exploit quicktopic anonymity. Apparently, people from other species don't do it.
2° You didn't seem to find this particularly strange, we had to push you for this to become a topic to your very eyes.
3° It's not "you and others" who have been "very forthcoming". It was you and kipper, who, little by little, clarified this specific issue.
4° It's not an investigation on "your species", it's an investigation on players-who-play-it-anonymous-for-no-reason, as it is scummy. These players happen to belong to a species that is yours. You people are both our interface to them, and the ones who can investigate it first hand.
5° Others have been as "forthcoming" by stating that their own quicktopic didn't involve anonymous players. They have answered as clearly -or more- to the question "do people in your group post while hiding their identity, and if yes, what does that mean, affiliation-wise". They have answered "no, why would they".
6° Do you see a townie reason for these behaviours ? We have asked this question before, you have half-answered it, but I find it even more interesting now that a murder has been committed, and committed on a Terran (established as not your species), and not on a member of your hypothetically anonymous-worthy species.
7° More precisely, if you argue (as was implied in the previous day) that there is a reason to hide one's appartenance to your species, why was a Terran murdered and not one of yours ?
Even if the mafia/cult was unsure about some appartenances, there would have been, after yesterday's discussions, you as a certified specimen to target. Is there for instance anything, in your quicktopic, that could have lead scum to believe that darko was one of yours ?
In other words : How does the murder of a Terran make sense after yesterday's discussion on the legitimacy of staying anonymous in your group ? This is a question I am not asking only to your group, by the way.
(I currently have three hypotheses to explain it, but let's see what others come up with.)
