The History of GaryThompson

https://epicmafia.com/user/788593/

"my initials spelling gt is just a massive coincidence that is my actual name" - GaryThompson, https://epicmafia.com/report/280380

Hypothesis

GaryThompson is a gamethrowing troll that purposefully antagonizes people and is looking to make his alignment lose. He very intelligently toes the line between appearing bad at the game and intentionally throwing games so as to not be vio'd.

Background

He is confirmed to be the alternate account of a previously banned user.

"Tis lad is banned so adios till 3 months." - Spadez, https://epicmafia.com/report/272446

The Birth of GaryThompson

Our story starts nine months ago with the birth of a new account, GaryThompson. He intentionally shoots a townsperson into autoloss for his alignment. The moderator sees Gary's lack of games and assumes he is a noob, not looking into his alternate accounts. NO VIO. https://epicmafia.com/report/266816

The story continues very similarly for the next three months. He is no vio'd for reasons like "suboptimal," "no intention to lose," "leaving information out accidentally isn't a sin," and "being wrong isn't a sin."

The First Ban

After due diligence by a now deleted user after some investigative work, it is proposed for the first time Gary is a gt account. A smart moderator by the name of Spadez investigates the account and realizes it is an alt for a banned user. GaryThompson is banned for three months.

The Return After Ban #1

Gary returns about one month ago to EpicMafia and goes back to his gamethrowing ways. He toes the line between intentional and unintentional, knowing how the moderators handle reports on EM to evade any violations. The end goal is always to make his alignment lose. Users of all races and backgrounds catch on and continue to file reports against Gary.

Moderators continue to come to his rescue.

> "They explained their strategy below. No intent to lose the game either." - Neptune, https://epicmafia.com/report/278315

Another user catches on to his ways, this time in a comped game. The moderators once again give Gary the benefit of the doubt.

"I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt GaryThompson, you have an obligation when playing a comp setup to know how the roles work, and how they interact with eachother. You can't split votes with paralyzer." - VanityPrime, https://epicmafia.com/report/278482

These reports continue to be filed game after game, and moderators continue to say "bad gameplay is not gt."

SinB, an intelligent moderator after receiving yet another report about GaryThompson gamethrowing, goes into more depth a month ago about what he sees.

> I somewhat debated with myself for awhile now about this report and what is the best verdict given to GaryThompson. fuel I know you were upset with how GaryThompson was playing, but I ultimately decided to no vio this report for the following reasons. Nothing indicated that this user was trolling or game throwing by any means. Sure, they could have participated more on the second day, but overall, I didn't see where GaryThompson gt'd or trolled. I didn't see any instances where GaryThompson had to be reminded what his role or other roles do in this game. None of his lines indicated that. Him tabbing out and wasn't present to paralyze on pr wasn't intentionally gamethrowing, but I do agree that he should have put more focus during the games.And as much I don't really believe with what he said during night 4, I'm choosing to give him the benefit of the doubt here. And even then, it still isn't intentionally throwing in that game. I would discuss the other game reports, but I feel like the other moderators' explanations were sufficient enough. If you have more evidence of more games where GaryThompson gt'd or trolled in, please refile with game links. If this happens again in the future, please feel free to report it. While I did no vio this report, I'll be keeping an eye out for GaryThompson, in case something similar happens in the future, but for now, this report is being no vio'd. - SinB, https://epicmafia.com/report/278485

So, let me ask the community - what do you think?

Everyone with half a brain knows who Gary is, stop watching conspiracy videos and land back on planet Earth.
I’m not a cretin who spends my whole life on here, but keep trying to talk to me!
Quite ironic, given that you have more games than me, more filed reports and more forum presence than I do :)
Less of a creep tho...
Less of a creep, more of a dedicated troll that likes to speak like a 16th century female war veteran. A fine trade-off, if you ask me!
What are you even talking about?

https://epicmafia.com/report/272468 - GaryThompson's alts

https://epicmafia.com/report/256482 - shet ton of reports that confirm he is a GT'er

Somebody please tell me why this man was lobby banned until January 20, 2020 but was allowed to continue to play on GaryThompson. #emconspiracy

Gary is mikeyru?
i want to know why mods were defending a banned user bypassing?
Thirty1mon 2d
GaryThompson literally fos'ed me because i refused to claim that i was GrannyPixel. Granny has confirmed that she has had problems with several of his alts in the past, so this is clear grudge. however, mods protected him and Alexandra told me that she knew who he was - why not give him a bypassing vio?
I don't see a post with Granny confirming anything.
https://epicmafia.com/report/267942 woooooooooooow

So wait, this banned user was playing red hearts back in October.

Damn son, the mods are so blatantly sh*t and bias that they pass out bs violations to users they don't like while actively NVing games from a banned user.
That's a yikes from me, dog.

Makes you wonder why? It's a mafia site.
It's a mafia site that panders to certain values in force but refuses to moderate gameplay. This is literally just a social site now.

Why give someone a bypassing vio if they're not banned?
always trying to talk to me, nothing creeps me out more!

Dear god, it was a simple question. They're not a *permanently* banned user or a *currently* banned user, so they're not bypassing. Sure, they probably have been banned in the past. Do you even read what I say or do you just assume i'm making fun of you, lmao.
Is Gary a purposeful GT'ing troll?
