As I read through day 2, I had a bunch of posts I wanted to quote and added them to multi-quote. But I guess they disappeared over the course of a day.
I'll have to go back and find them again, but for now I'll answer Fused's question from the previous day since I remember where it is and he was specifically addressing me.

Moe, you seem good at finding small things in someone's posts that can be sucmtells. But don't you think you're being a tad overbearing? I can't completely tell how serious you are about some of these because I don't know your playstyle, but a lot of the things you're pointing out are small day 1 things.
I think it's a great trait since it can help us find scum. But things like the color of people's posts don't really seem like scumtells to me.
Regarding the day 1 lynch thing... I'm just gonna throw out there that I'm totally fine with a no lynch. I see everyone's point about the importance of a day 1 lynch but I don't want to just RVS it. Luckily it seems like we're getting some substance already so that might not be necessary.
Heroine says here that she likes Moe’s ability to find scumtells out of nothing. She does say that Moe can be a tad overbearing but clearly she’s okay with it since she thinks it’ll help us find scum.

I initially thought you might be town with a very unique playstyle, since you did seem to be genuinely scumhunting, but now it's coming off as more uncooperative and secretive. Those are not qualities that are beneficial to the Town.

I'm not completely convinced you're scum, since we've had people with similarly uncooperative playstyles before who have ended up Town (Storm, for example, iirc). And I think DekuNut had a great point about your playstyle probably being the product of you being a member on another website with a different culture. But I think you'd be a good first day lynch if we have no better leads, since these qualities just seem inherently anti-Town to me.
She later follows that up with this. From what I can understand here she still has the same general thoughts on Moe but now she’s on the wagon of it’s too annoying to be useful instead of believing Moe’s behaviour is a “great trait since it can help us find scum”. Interesting flip. Would you care to explain your position a little more, Heroine?
Indeed I would, Fused! Thanks for asking!
I didn't at all mean that I liked Moe's ability to find scumtells out of nothing. I actually rewrote that post several times to not come off as really rude because I was just straight up annoyed with him at that point lol. I didn't want to offend him, nor did I want that annoyance to cloud my judgment and cause me to be unfairly suspicious of him, so I tried to find positives in what he was doing. I never said that I would tolerate him being overbearing just because he might find scum, though upon rereading it I guess I can see how you'd get that impression. I was just trying to be nice. XD
Of course, over time it just kept getting more and more impossible to ignore so I thought that maybe there was something more to this than just me being annoyed. Obviously the past has proven me wrong.
Now for Pendio:
I have been reading through the thread again, and I've found myself becoming more suspicious of Heroine of Time for various reasons. She has made the least amount of posts, which in itself isn't really suspicious since I know it's been part of how she plays ever since the old days. But what's different here is that the few posts that she does make haven't been very long to compensate for the fact that there are fewer of them. IIRC she's usually been making some pretty lengthy posts to catch up on everything that's happened since she last posted, but here her posts are roughly as long as anyone else's, but they're still few. Additionally her posts haven't really contained that much substance IMO. From what I was able to find she posted a lot of pretty obvious things like agreements and repeated statements from other members.
Well that's mostly my fault because I only posted on day 1. There wasn't much to go off of that day so there wasn't much for me to post about. I'm just an idiot and missed day 2 so I haven't had the opportunity to make longer posts yet.
With her vote for Moe she was seemingly the only one who voted with reasons being that she suspected him, however. But even that was a pretty late vote and the reasons she gave for suspecting him weren't overly convincing. She even admitted to not fully believing he was scum, but she still voted saying that she voted because she suspected him, and not because his play style rubbed her the wrong way. IDK, to me that seems a bit odd.
I was actually the first person to vote for Moe, so I'm not sure what you mean by a late vote. You mean later in the day?
I initially put my vote on Moe in hopes of pressuring him into sharing the information he was apparently witholding from the town. After that didn't work, I found that I had no reason to remove my vote. There weren't really any better alternatives presented on Day 1 and as I explained back then a lot of his actions seemed extremely anti-Town.
And something else she's been doing is expressing some very positive or trusting statements towards other players and in response to accusations on other players. Seems to me like she's been trying to win the trust of certain players by doing this. I suppose I haven't seen her playing as toughly as I remember seeing her, and I can't help but view that as scummy since she's been Town in most of the games I've seen her play in the past.
Vote: Heroine of Time
Maybe I'm just a more positive person after a few years?
Honestly I just haven't had the chance to play more aggressive/tough/whatever you want to call it. I was absent for day 2, and I've just been exhausted the last few days. (This post alone has taken me over an hour and it's past 4 AM, and this isn't even much scumhunting, mostly just responding to things. D: ) So yeah, I'll try to fix that.
I was going to add a read list here, since I actually have one in my notes, but I realized as I was writing it I can't possibly dedicate the time to explain all of my reads right now, and just posting my opinions on alignments without any evidence just seems pointless. Besides, I haven't had the chance to thoroughly comb through the thread to confirm them, so I'm reluctant to say something that I might change my mind about within the first few minutes of looking through the thread.
However, I will say that I'm absolutely fine with lynching Deku. He was actually ranked scummiest on my list hahaha. Again though, I'm definitely going to have to review everything, since even though I definitely had reasons for thinking that when creating this list the only thing I wrote down was that he kept pulling up Day 1 jokes/RVS as evidence and it felt like he was reaching to throw suspicion on people.
The sun is starting to come up now so I'm going to bed.
