Let's roll with it then.


And about Boro - maybe y'all have already read this between the lines, but I have been far more mad at myself for falling for Boro's little ploy than at him for actually doing it. After all, if he's innocent - like I think he more likely is - it was never me who he was trying to "harm". But I've kept guilt tripping him after my initial yelling for two reasons 1) he kinda deserves to be teased a little after giving us all so many gray hairs and being presumptous enough to try to rein the QT to his own purposes and 2) I thought his reaction to guilt tripping would be telling, because I think innocent Boro might feel genuinely a little sorry for duping me while guilty Boro might feel more amused by it. So after the first two posts I have admittedly been partly fishing for a reaction.

The morose, low-key-seeking-to-make-amends vibe I get is not as unambiguous as I hoped, but it is quite a lot more innocent than suspicious seeming to me. I don't think a Borowolf would pull this kind of crocodile tears - in my experience Borowolf's reaction to suspicion is most often the "fair enough if you think that makes sense, I warn you you are wrong though" type. And here Boro is going "I understand if everybody hates me now" while he hasn't even been that seriously suspected - just his behaviour has been scrutinised which is more than understandable.

So tl;dr Boro - we don't hate you, not even me , and the rest of you - I think he's more likely innocent than guilty.
