What I was REALLY frustrated about was no one actually looked at my case on dazza to see what I was talking about. I explained twice why I quoted drunkmonkey and no one listened. I ended up stonewalling because
1. I didn't want to explain it again, and
2. RL became a bitch.
My Jack counterclaim fell on similar deaf ears. My vote on MeDeFe should have communicated my meaning well enough. All I got were complaints that I wasn't claiming. I did end up coming out and saying it more directly, but at that point I think people had already made up their minds.
It is with that that I'm actually going to retroactively call town out on the reasoning behind my lynch. The former point, I contended (and still contend) that my quote of drunkmonkey was relevant to my case on dazza and that people weren't actually reading my post. The latter point, you may argue, I was being vague, but subtlety is extremely important. In my mind it wasn't SAFE to outright claim Jack, and only one person was willing to tender that option. Being as quiet as possible on an issue can be important at times. There was a lot of discussion of "breadcrumbing" in this game (I dislike that term, but that's another argument). If you see someone doing that, are you going to ask if they're the cop, or are you going to ask a leading question to get a vague response to interpret to know if you can trust that person?
If you're wondering why I'm saying all of this, I'm really interested in this game not degrading into unsmart, variously-pop-culture-themed mush. If someone from the town would like to humor me with a response, Id much enjoy it. If you're going to tell me I should have said all when I was about to get lynched, see reason #2 above.
My goodness, I gave the Godfather the strongest fakename. And really, I think mafia should have realized after the Day 1 VT lynch that not only were there going to be VT's, but there also would be minor character VT's. I tried to tailor the fake names to the relative usefulness of the mafia characters. The goons got characters who would probably be VT's, the roleblocker got a character who could have been a hider or something, and the godfather got one that would have been a pretty good third party survivor role.
