Can everybody just calm down. It's just day 1.
Day one is usually very chaotic. :)
I'd be surprised if day one was very organized.
As to the defensive thing, personally, I'm defensive whenever I'm accused no matter if I'm town or mafia. The thing about those games is that you have to act like a townie when you're mafia, so the "you're too defensive" argument doesn't work. It hasn't in the past and it won't now.

To be honest, getting defensive over being bandwagoned for absolutely no reason other than that all the cool kids are doing it is perfectly reasonable. Byron isn't acting scummy here by defending himself against a day one bandwagon. Yeah, he's totally scum for not wanting to be killed off day 1.
I'm for day one lynches. I am not for day one bandwagons, because it is so easy for the mafia to vote in the bandwagon and point to it later, saying "I'm not the only one who did it."
Why is it that we always have to bandwagon? Can we just have a close call for a change? I quit keeping tally on my mafia around day 3 because there was no point keeping track of the fact that everyone voted for the same person.Byron, I've stated time and time again that not lynching will give the mafia an advantage. Your bandwagon was the first one I saw. You have yet to give me any reason to unvote you.
Well, if that's true, and I doubt it because it would be a terrible move on your part, then you'll be dead night 1 anyway. You think the mafia is going to let someone who claimed cop live? Nope.I'm an "every other night" cop. I can check someone on odd nights.
Never, ever, ever claim cop in-thread, especially day one. =/
This happened to Russia. before... She claimed cop in thread, and it turned out she actually WAS the cop. Which is why I'm not sure about this.
I can understand why Gym Leader Byron was getting defensive, because I've gotten pretty defensive on day 1 bandwagons against me. Still, maybe America* thought differently about that? Maybe she sees the mafia as getting defensive, because it could just be her way of thinking. I don't think America* or Gym Leader Byron is mafia, but my vote stays on Gym Leader Byron just in case, because I don't wanna be the one to get out.
To me, claiming every-other-night cop is pretty suspicious. I'm guessing if America* is mafia, there will be another mafioso who will claim to check on even nights. However, since I just pointed that out, the possibility just diminished.
My vote stands.
