Re: Diablo Mafia - Day 3 (Demons Abound)

I didn't disagree with your logic. Your insistence on it being the be all and end all is laughable. Simply put, it's all a huge red herring. We can't prove who is and who is not SK vs mafia, so what is your point? You are also forgetting the chances that scum and SK might kill each other. They don't...

Re: Diablo Mafia - Day 3 (Demons Abound)

Sabrar's insistence on the whole 'lynch mafia or SK' debate is, quite frankly, laughable. It all relies on a hypothetical situation where we know for sure who the SK is, and who a mafia member is. At this stage of the game, it doesn't matter too much who we lynch between SK and mafia. You still hav...

Just because they aren't scum doesn't mean they are pro-town. No, but wasting a lynch on someone who is not a threat seems like a bad idea (worse than No Lynch from a pure mathematical pov).
