If someone else mentions your name before you post, and you then post afterwards, that means you're lurking and must be guilty.

You know, if I always follow this guide, I can't possibly fail to suspect the Mafia!

And the best thing is that there are no noticeable downsides. Yes Drafterman, this is a great resource for every fellow on the site I tell you!

LOL. First, nice buzzkill there.
Second, I seriously doubt you've never killed a townie before.
Third, it's laughable that people completely ignore that my fear was completely, 100% justified.

Never one DP 1. And never for someone that was suspicious of a very suspicious role.

Well. I've killed twice NP1. Townie and mafia. 50/50. Better than average. So, cut me some slack, ok?

I just wish you would admit you made a horrible decision, instead of defending yourself.

I dont give a flying fvck on what you HAVE done before.

Medic's Golden Rules:

1) You're all scum until you prove that you're not.
2) The only confirmation of affiliation is death.
3) If you're alive and wonder why I don't trust you, re-read rules 1 and 2.
4) Bastard modding sucks.
