As a matter of fact I do.

Let's see an example: There's an interesting interaction between PW and Hari here where PW asks Hari to explain his scoring system. As an aside, first I note that this is on Page 3, which Hari himself has suggested is where scum will typically ask their partners a non-trivial question. For reference...

For most part of the game flicky and Hari avoid each other like wildfire, not even committing to reads. From that pov that is certainly a possible pair.

This leaves 10 possible pairs which should be manageable to review. Furthermore I think it's fair to discard cemper/MOA+flicky and Hari+LaserGuy based on D1 (though I will take a second look). That leaves 8 pairs. Also, even though it's MYLO there's technically no advantage in NL, except to gain mor...

Unofficial votals - correction

jimbobmacdoodle - 4 (Hari Seldon, Sabrar, flicky1991, MasterOfAll)
flicky1991 - 2 (LaserGuy, jimbobmacdoodle)

Not voting: bessie, BoomFrog

With 8 alive hammer requires 5 votes. Tied votals will result in no lynch.
