But lynching inactives wastes time and phases :(
That's the downside of it. On the upside, they can't waste time/phases later.

The style has pros and cons. On the one hand soaking in all that information at once lets you draw connections you would normally miss and have to dig out of a thread reread. It also lets you...you know, actually go do stuff instead of care about a silly forum game all day. That said, if you handle posts as they come and put more time into them individually you can notice things you won't notice from the big picture, just as with the other way around. It may have been good that we were playing differently because the styles do complement each other.
"disappear for 24 hours then write a comprehensive wall of text and repeat" playstyle, but they're in the minority.
Prims is still gay though either way.
Good for picking off mafia coasters, bad for avoiding easy mislynches. I like a balanced amount of idlers and real players in my games so I can use them as I please

Silencer - I've seen plenty of silencers that don't allow voting.
Persuader - Sometimes, that person is told to vote X way during the day on pain of modkill. Othertimes, their vote is changed in the votals only. SF tends to stick to the former.
