On the Pooh-pact: I stand by it, it didn't hurt anyone, nor did it really influence the game. Like I stated earlier, I can get a bit paranoid playing games, seeing patterns and pacts everywhere. By being in a pact, I at least knew for certain there was one
On the donations: I feel there's a big difference between Pooh's and Dotsie's.
Pooh, outside of the game, is saying: I've made an assumption on something I can't know for certain, but I'm so sure of me being right, that I'm putting money on it.
Dotsie's betting on herself so not on an assumption, but on a hard fact that only she is aware of, as of the now. Pooh doesn't know for certain if Dotsie is innocent or not. Dotsie does.
So now Michelancello has got to decide if it's a bluff or the truth. You might say that there's no real difference between saying 'I'm innocent' and 'If I'm the killer I'll donate 100 pounds' but I'd bet not many people would agree (and I'm not putting money on that sentence
). If Dotsie had said 'If I turn out to be the killer, I'll eat my hat!' would I have minded as much? Probably not. Nobody expects her to eat her actual hat if it turns out she is the killer. But we'd all expect her to come true on her promise of a donation, right? Anything else would be bad for indeed.
Still, gamewise, we pretty much know that Michelancello's not the killer since she could've finished the game by using all her votes on Dotsie when I did the same. So she has the game in the palm of her hand - and Dotsie's comment turned her whole world upside-down, I'd say. Dotsie knows who the killer is. I know who the killer is. We both want to get Michelancello to vote for the other one.
Michelancello, to ease your mental state:
I can't ask you to ignore Dotsie's 100 pound comment.
I don't blame you for changing your vote back to me based on it - I promise not to hold it against you now or in any future games/posts.
And I thank you for comparing me to Superman
Dotsie, to ease your mental state:
While I don't agree with someone betting on themselves, but Pooh really goaded you into it with his comment so I don't blame you.
Pooh, to ease your mental state:
Men! They're to blame for everything!
