Story Post: Trial: Contradictory Behavior

This Trial “has been open for voting for at least 24 hours and cannot be Enacted”, so fails. Failed by Kevan.

Brendan has been saying some mighty suspicious things recently. He must be an Android!

Specifically, in the “Let’s Talk About This” proposal, Brendan said “This is definitely going to pass and not get sabotaged, so why not?” The proposal was at 2-2 when it was sabotaged. His confidence made me suspect he has extra information. This may be my paranoia talking, but I think he’s an Android.

Given that some of our players aren’t active enough to do Missions reliably, canning the pilot would be bad for our survival.

However, Brendan, I think it would be a good idea for you to suggest who else we should put on trial, and explain why.

for Something about Brendan’s voting on key issues feels performative.

against, obviously. I’m too busy piloting this damn hunk of spaceship to go in for your theatrical mockery of justice, but I can’t help but notice a certain sequence of events that took place in a very short span of time:

1) Sylphrena proposed a rule change that had no chance of passing—the Androids have no reason not to kill a proposal that limits their veto.
2) Sylphrena’s proposal shockingly got sabotaged, and immediately afterward, Sylphrena helpfully added Paranoid to their own Emotions.
3) This makes the Atmosphere Paranoid—something it would not have done if someone hadn’t MD1C’d me just beforehand.
4) Sylphrena takes advantage of the Atmosphere to start our first trial, which was much more likely to target a human than an android, and in fact did so.

What a fascinating coincidence.

You think I’m an Android?

Let’s get this straight. You believe I made a post that limits own veto, proceeded to make (admittedly somewhat feeble, but still wholly unnecessary) defenses of said proposal, just so I could sabotage it in order to accuse you of being an Android—using as evidence, by the way, a statement I had know way of knowing you would say?

Maybe, instead, I saw an opportunity to act on my suspicions and took it. Simple as that.

Sylphrena: How likely do you think it is that Brendan is an Android? (Please express as a probability, and note that I will be suspicious of your motives if you don’t answer)

About 65%.
