It did not need to be explained. What he said was so fundamentally wrong it should be immediately obvious to any half-assed player. Are you saying that disagree with the obvious illegitimacy of his vote?
Actually it does. You are assuming everyone has your intellect, which seems to excuse you from doing what lesser mortals are expected to do. What he said may be fundamentally wrong but it is also your job as a player to explain why.
In a court of law the prosecution must state their case in order to convict the most obvious of killers. Even if it is believed by everyone involved they still need to present a bare minimum explanation of why the evidence dictates guilt. A simple "yeah" does not cut it.
This is a lynch mob, not a courtroom. For complex cases you are correct, but for advocating a lynch simply because people have joke votes on them... You also dodge the question, do you disagree with the obvious illegitimacy of his vote?
Also, this is a themeless game. This will be very challenging for bad players because we won't just be handed shit with the scenes. It's going to take a level of play (hopefully) that isn't always seen in our regular games. We WILL have to look at vote patterns, careless missteps, and other very minute tells rather than relying on flavor so heavily. Apathy towards the actual targets of the lynch is one.

Correct, but random is the wrong way to do it. People have already been dropping tells like mad.

See above, and also my stuff directed to IB. This game will rely very heavily on vote analysis, and who protects who with their votes.

He claims bulletproof, doc, cop, VT, busdriver, JOAT, lover, Governor, the list goes on and on. Now what? Do we hang him? There is no basis for the case, no reason to lynch, no nothing. Claims do not help the town, confirmed townies do, and a random-ass D1 claim won't prove anything, and could even lead to the cop being outed if the scum are actually found and even remotely clever. Claims just tell the scum how to counter the town.
