Re: ROMS: (DC)XV -- GAME ON
Apologies--this is out of order. I got caught up on the reading and then realize I'd forgotten to open the things I wanted to respond to in new tabs, so have had to go back and try to find them again.
Your analogy would work better as: "I have a strange feeling that this other employee is up to something." "Why?" "I just have a strange feeling." "That's baloney. Something is either giving you a strange feeling or you're making barnacle up to try to make trouble for another employee. Figure it out and tell me what it is, or you're the one who's getting written up."
That's a pretty good summation of where I ended up. Prosperity's comment about essentially random Day 1 votes in other venues is well-taken, and I probably would have given him a pass if he'd said it was a random vote, because I know that it is common elsewhere.
I kept asking until I got an answer to my question, then stopped asking, which, yes, is pretty much how I play, since information is half what the game turns on. I've pretty clearly stated that I'm not entirely satisfied with it, because there's not really any reason it couldn't have been said when he voted. Also, please note that I never claimed that I thought Mrbriney's vote had anything to do with pressure, and that I have been known to apply pressure votes myself, to varying degrees of success. I even tried to explain to Master the difference between a pressure vote and the type of vote Mrbriney placed. You seem to be conflating my response to Mrbriney and Master's response to Mrbriney in this comment.
More than usually are. And even a weak argument against a rogue on Day 1 means the rogues have to consider how to manage the attention, so it's useful to try, I think.
The rest of that post goes on to explain what specifically about Riku's behavior Goats finds off. That's not a vote based on gut, it's based on an interpretation of actually cited evidence of actions Riku has actually taken in the thread. I'm curious why you chose to disregard the rest of the post in order to make this argument, since it falls to straw as soon as you look at the very next sentence.
I don't necessarily agree with the interpretation, because I don't really see a rogue Riku being so...energetic...in his defense of either a fellow rogue or a player he's trying to use for FoI. Riku's pretty well hitched to Mrbriney at this point, and if either turns up rogue, it's likely to go badly for the other--something rogue Riku would have to know. I can see how Goats might come to a different conclusion than I have at this point, though.
Although...it occurs to me that Riku hasn't really seemed to consider the possibility that Mrbriney could be a rogue, which could indicate a lack of uncertainty about Mrbriney's status. I'll have to think about that and read back over that exchange if I get a chance.
If nothing else, Mrbriney's vote has sparked quite a bit of discussion, about several different players and actions, so yay for an active Day 1. It promises to be an exciting game.
