I don't see how it doesn't make sense, and trying to poke at Zima, claiming that it "doesn't make sense", is specious, rather than substantial, which again is an attempt to paint her in a more suspicious light.
2. A roleclaim is not the be-all and end-all of how suspicious somebody is, and nor should it really be the deciding factor in a lynch (barring actual proof that they're not what they claim to be or suchlike). Besides, she didn't actually say that her role made her suspicious -- just that a lot of mafia claim it (although I've never actually seen a commuter fakeclaim before), and that she'd probably get lynched for claiming it, both of which do not mean that she's saying that her role makes her suspicious. Again, you're being specious in trying to accuse her of inconsistency (and of being mafia, I guess).
3. See 2. Besides that, you say that, "with the latter we at least learn what your role is", yet you go on to doubt what she says anyway, which means that, frankly, you're being inconsistent. Additionally, saying what she did communicates nothing to the mafia that the town won't pick up on -- you're saying that ONLY the mafia will learn she has a power role (which isn't even true: mafia don't always claim power)... and what of the town? Could they not also deduce that she may have a power role, or are we unable to get that idea from what she points out? I guess you modified that by saying "anything useful", but the fact that she is a power role is just as useful to town as it is to mafia: not very. The mafia probably wouldn't kill based on the fact that somebody may have a power role, so it's not like it gives them anything. Anyway, you make this point more from a mafia point of view than a town point-of-view, as you don't seem to realise that what she said did have some
import for the town. As well as that, trying to out a claim on Day 1? Yeah. I'm aware that she offered, but you don't need to take her up on it, especially given that it apparently is "only useful to the mafia".
