You say you want to "cast a vote to see if I can draw someone into the fray," yet you don't understand my (goofy) switch to thg last round?

Kraftster is the best vote this round, IMO.

Thg still not showing up probably means he's blue and doesn't care or whatever. I agree with nan, though, that getting rid of a complete no-show is not a bad thing.

If you're blue, it's always a bad thing to vote for someone you think is blue. That's my thinking, at least.

I didn't say that I did not understand your (goofy) switch?

Why are you gunning so hard for me? I know did tell you to hit me as hard as you can, but...Ouch! You hit me in the ear?!

To me, this early, it's the best route. You chase out the quiet bad guys and hopefully they slip up, or you kill off the blues that aren't paying attention and will be a liability at the end of the game.

Not a liability. Strength in (blue) numbers. Maybe not a help, but not a liability.

What strength do they add if they never participate or vote? And if they do come in late, they have no posts to look back on. This adds unnecessary confusion late in the game, which I definitely see as a liability.

I see where you're coming from, but blue is blue. If blues are eliminated, even in a good-intentioned way, the reds/yellows/whatever will win quicker. IMO, it's better to try to find reds than eliminate blues, even if the blues are not active.

Now, unless I'm the seer (which I am not in this game), I will never be 100% sure, but if I believe someone to be blue, I will not vote for him/her.

Three pages of pushing a vote on me, and you still can't ask?
You voted for me because you think I'm red.
Yes you did. So just ask. Cut the foreplay and ask, man.
Is it a problem for you to ask?
No, I'm not red.

This is getting ridiculous that none of the called out quiets have stepped in at all.

I agree that the quietness is getting ridiculous. However, I believe we gain a lot more right now by seeing what happens with kraftster.

I have a class from 8:45 to 12:30. I hope to be living when I get back.

Since I will likely be out of touch, I will have to throw my vote on thg for now. Pavel, I think rel has a vote on thg also.

While mac and thg have been MIA, I'm more concerned with players who have voted and have no other posts.

That's a good point Willie... someone that jumps in at the end of a bandwagon to vote, but not have to say much else could definitely be a quiet red.
