I just pretty much semi confirmed 4 townies and wanted to continue to confirm/catch more, but yeah, I'm scum.
Why would I ask McLovin to post the last letter of his alignment if I didn't know it myself and therefore couldn't call bullshit? Suicide. Why wouldn't I want Clover to edit his posts when the breadcrumb could only help scum?
It's likely enough that the town alignment is in the scum PMs and if not, then Nov might have just got his scum team a little help by getting others to reveal the town alignment by making it the hot topic of the first few pages.
