Re: 2020 Presidency Campaign for the Future

On the issue of Trump being excluded from the ballot in California, I am concerned that holding the election without the Republican nominee being on the ballot will result in the Federal Election Commission or the Supreme Court declaring California’s vote to thus be void, thus removing its 55 Elect...

Re: Ghostbusters: Total Protonic Reversal (Day 3)

I received no PM from the mod involving night results/flavor text (first night was just flavor text, my power is passive, I have no input over it), which likely means I wasn't targeted last night.

I'm guessing after that answer, combined with the previous, as if we no-lynch, it triggers some sort of scum power. Especially with the "No-lynch votes are not useful to town" caveat.
