That's not implausible, no. In fact, it happens quite a bit. I don't see why it couldn't be the case.
There's a flip side to everything in here isn't there. Why can't it be that I just believed hotshot and wanted to get ahead by a day going for dj?
I'm not saying that's impossible, and HotShot flipping town certainly helps your case. Matter of fact, you're probably the one I'm most inclined to trust out of those who voted DJ, so I think the only reason you're on me is that I thought your behavior scummy inherently, but not necessarily your reasoning. I'm not sure why you're getting so defensive about this.
Also, an hour or two before deadline, it seemed readily apparent to me that hotshot was indeed telling the truth. I gotta feel like I wasn't the only one. Some of you were on during this time (yourself included pancake). Why did you not switch your vote to dj?
Maybe you weren't the only one, but what seems readily apparent to you is not so to others. I had an interpretation of HotShot's actions, and I was not swayed by his posting reads. Anyone can do that. Even if I had switched, what would that accomplish? Mere hours or minutes before the deadline, do you honestly believe that a turnaround could have been mounted toward the commonly deemed more questionable lynch choice?
You and mtam were just kind of like "oh well".
It was well established that HotShot was a low risk lynch, nevermind his actions. I knew going in that the worst thing that could happen was that we would lose a VT and one of two people was scum, which is a pretty good trade all things considered.
Fwiw, dj could be townie NRA, but if so, he did a poor job of reflecting that. townie or mafia NRA, I just don't see a day 2 scenario where dj isn't the lynch and me and a few others were trying to get that done yesterday.
Again, his behavior doesn't indicate his alignment one way or the other. The only thing that is certain is that HotShot proved one of the two is a liar, but it is uncertain which of them that is. Mtam posted more, but that doesn't mean much of anything.
