This may have been a tongue-in-cheek statement by Puft, but if it was not meant in jest then I'm quite interested in hearing him elaborate. Maybe he's just anxious for some other players to be in the hot seat so he's not so hot himself (I happen to prefer a brown toasting for my marshmallows, as opposed to full flambe myself). The fact that he was not lynched seems to speak against the conclusion of the post (people analyzing his claim and choosing to keep him alive). I'm also quite curious to know what sort of analysis he feels is missing considering we don't have much to analyze beyond Day 1 votes (high noise to signal ratio), three Day 1 claims, and one early Day 2 claim.
That was said with tongue firmly planted in cheek, but I was also half serious, but not exactly for the reason you supposed. It was more a reaction to the fact that we seem to be stuck in Day 1 (Take 2)...we have the same information we had at the end of the day yesterday, and everyone seems (or seemed at the time I wrote that) to be more or less settling into the same state of mind they had yesterday.
As for what analysis I feel is missing? I wish I could give you a good answer. You pointed out the problem yourself: we don't have much to analyze. That's not anyone's fault, and I wasn't trying to call anyone out for faulty analysis. Though it occurs to me that there must certainly be some amount of faulty analysis going on, ad if we can spot it, it will lead us directly to Scum. If Dexter can swoop in and provide that analysis, I'll take back all the bad things I've been thinking about him for being mostly non-participatory.
Yes, that was a smudge, but I think he deserves it. Other than popping in a couple of times to say "I don't really have anything to say at this point" he hasn't had much to say. That doesn't mean he's scum, but it does mean I wouldn't mind seeing a bit of analysis from him.
