Tada! 5-12 Okay, with that done I move on to what I'd really like to say here. Yes not all 10 can be mafia, that would be totally ridiculous. But am I supposed to pick out only five? What if everyone is being suspicious in my eyes, well they can't all be mafia. But that still means any one of them could be mafia, some with higher percentages. In my case, there are ten suspicions. They can't all be mafia, but each one of them is a probability.
I still think it's strange that you would cast your suspicions on so many people. You're right, not all of them can be mafia, but there's no reason to be so overly cautious. Truth be told, the majority of the people you've cast suspicion are most likely townies. Only a small fraction of them could be mafia. I'm not sure if your cautiousness comes from fear of being lynched as a townie, or fear that you'll be weeded out as a mafiaso.

If every new player were to slip up during this game, you might as well assume they're all mafia. Oh wait, you kind of already did by accusing several players of having mafia potential for making the mistake of not posting/being inactive.
Raindrop14 said:And, I assume those who do not post often are mafia because they posted once, and after all this still nothing.
That still doesn't justify as to why you assume one has more potential to be scum than another. Like I said, both JJ and Drew have only posted once. In addition to that, neither of them have voted. Yet you wish to believe that JJ is 65% scum, and Drew is a merely 50/50. That makes no sense to me whatsoever.
