    Question from the quick.

    Can you go back in time and stuff? Like, to go hang out in ancient Egypt or anything like that?

    Eh, Darth don't play scared. I'll die with my head held high if that's what ka dictates. Here is what I have:

    Based on a series of pm's I had with Roscoe the other day(trying to glean more insight into his motives) I am reluctant to cast a vote against him when there are other options. He MAY be innocent.

    However, I found some things that made me highly suspicious of Webz.


    Laimbeer in wnba playoffs thread : webz #77 (word
    playoffs in title)


    Notice the words Laimbeer AND playoffs. Also notice
    players,WNBA and Shock.

    Laimbeer being the Piston word and the others are
    possible general basketball words. Here is the
    suspicious post:

    Re: Laimbeer in WNBA Playoffs
    Congrats to Bill and the Shock.

    I'm not sure it would be fair on Laimbeer to bring him
    straight into the head coach position. Imagine the
    pressure he would face. I think if it was going to
    happen he should have a season as an assistant at
    least to get used to to everything, then if there was
    a position open, look at giving him the reigns.
    -----------------------------------------------------------


    So I looked at his posts since the murders began. First he accused Jammer and voted to hang him. Then Aurora, then jumped on the hang Darth bandwagon.

    Always apologetic and always in the shadows.

    This guy is smart enough to pull this whole thing off.
    I know. I saw the basketball team he drafted!

    Webz...I think maybe you did it.

    I'm at work. Can anyone cross reference the murder words to see if he could have done the other murders, or if his partner (perhaps hanged) could have done so.

    I'm only going with the evidence. I wish I had more time to check everything.


    --------------------------------------------------------

    And by the way folks, if I were a murderer, my partner must still be alive (since I voted to hang the dead guys), so don't you think I would have my partner posting these theories???? Of course I would. But I ma doing it because I don't have a partner. I'm innocent.

    If i'm not mistaken, detteam also has several posts within the timeframe (especially on 9.10.06) and in the "laimbeer in WNBA playoffs" thread that use the word "Laimbeer" (and not just in the thread title) as well as any number of other words that could be the generic basketball words.

    I was also trying to brainstorm other possible Pistons words that include the letters "L" "E" and "A". "Maxiell" came to mind, but then there's no posts that use that word -- if I used the search function correctly -- within the murder time frame.

    Anybody out there feel like trying to help widen the list of possible Pistons key words? Laimbeer fits, as Darth said, but there could be others we haven't thought of.

    Some others I've thought of without even checking to see whether they've even been used in any posts

    Alex (as in Acker)
    Salley (as in John)
    Palace


    anybody else?

    You can't use this line

    It's automatically quoted from the thread title.

    I asked slippy that question earlier today, but maybe I misinterpreted his response.

    If you are correct, than that clears webz because Laimbeer is in the post but no other bball word is unless you use "assistant" and that seems a far stretch.

    I thought of "Palace" but nothing came up in my searches. "Alex" is good, but awfully short. The murderers would run out of clues after 4 killings.

    Carlisle???? Can someone check that out?

    Sounds very Quantum Leap 'ish! I'll have to check it out and get back to you. Perhaps thats what was in that Orientation booklet I used as scrap paper to work on my fantasy draft strategies. Crap!

    Ok...who used it?

    Remember...the killers don't even have to use that word every time.

    They can switch off between the 3 words. It's possible it was never used. But did one of us use it? That's possible evidence for a past murder (TFD's, I think...not sure who was killed during that time frame).

    It was buried under the part where it is suggested people draft Centers first. Look in the trash.

    Guys, nobody has voted. I assume it is for the same reason I haven't voted. We don't have enough real evidence to hang any individual and the few that we do suspect, are people who are either participating in this particular thread or on the forum overall.

    We want to encourage participation. Not punish it. I suggested long ago that we hang a person who really doesn't care or who is sandbagging. We have a couple of those people remaining while the rest of us are trying to figure this out. The sandbaggers very well may be innocent, but I think someone (NOT ME) should suggest a couple of names, and we discuss it and hang one. That will buy us time and increase participation.

    By sandbaggers I mean people who don't vote, don't discuss or solve the crime, and don't post otherwise.

    The clue letter the murderer leaves us next time should give us a big clue as to the Piston word. Assuming it's been used in the murder posts once or twice should help us make the right choice if we hang an active participant.

    So we should vote for someone who doesn't post? Forget that. You may like having the blood of innocents all over your hands, but I do not.

    It is said that he who is without sin should cast the first stone.

    I am almost ready to cast a ballot. My gut tells me something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

    Well, find a good baked potato picture. That should incite the crowd.

    Maybe we should all listen to Darth the Pied Piper who leads everyone to hang the innocent. Yeah.

    NO!

    And so it begins. The Darth Tater self preservation tour.

    "Vote to hang people who may not have done it because they are fodder"

    "Dlev and linwood must hang" *At least one was innocent*

    "Woe is me. Everyone is tossing rotten 'taters at Ol' Darth. Boo Hoo"

    I can't wait to see how much credibility you have after your alliance of murder conspirators does me in and the murders continue.

    HOW MANY TIMES WILL THIS POTATO HEAD BE ALLOWED TO KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE?
