Those who have been playing this summer: Is it true that he's been a punching bag of sorts?
this is such a meta question, eh, considering how many of us are in the HP game right now. (how many is that?) (let's see?)

...I'm assuming that the post is in reference to HP b/c his lynch just occurred in there, and I haven't read the community thread, really, today, and there was no such post by BB last time I checked that thread.
...my limited comment, given the "don't discuss ongoing games" restriction, is that the force of his argument is somewhat weakened given that he was just lynched *as an evil* and not by a majority by any means (11/75 votes IIRC).
But has he been a punching bag of sorts? Yea, I'd say so. But not the only one. McAvoy is, as well. JG can be. dkgo, now that he's active again (?), seems to be verging in that direction. Luckay dances on the edge of that sometiems. Elliot seems to have been that in the past (or maybe that's just in turbos? I get the sense of this but haven't actually seen it as a pattern). THC may fall into this category as well. maybe BEG, too?
There seems to be something of an attitude that certain players should just be lynched early without regard to their actual roles in a game. I haven't done an analysis to see how often this is actually a wolf argument ("let's lynch BB, he's always a good D1 lynch") or how often it actually occurs (as opposed to getting talked about, jokingly, seriously, or some mix).
If/when it's *not* a wolf ploy, it's pretty terrible for the game. & POG. for POG, obviously, if it's running off players. for the game, because the village doesn't get mislynches to remake itself in its preferred image by voting off "undesireables". a mislynch is a mislynch. the village is not "better off without" someone who turned out to be a villager.
voting off mrs. buttons in Lost Wolves D1 was this kind of fundamental error, I understand now.
It's especially heinous when someone in this category turns out to be a village power role. & it's results-oriented to think it was a good idea when they turn out to be an evil.
my advice to BB would be to stick it out.
& to remember that you don't have to run faster than the bear to avoid getting eaten
