I did not like Rictus' post from late yesterday. Especially given that now both San and Augie turned out to be wolves. This post seems tailor made to try to save at least of the pairing.

Yes, I know I just voted for him and that (maybe?) started a bandwagon on him.
I will be back before the end of the day (gotta put a kid to bed). I don't think San is a wolf, but since he's the alternate bandwagon I'm not sure what to do.
And speaking of saving the pairing, I'm not sure if no one voted for Aldax because it looks suspicious to vote for someone with 4 penalty votes or the really strange possibility that he too is a wolf and there were 3 of them all leading in votes. Because if not, why wouldn't San and or Augie vote to at least put him into a tie? If Aldax is human and San/Augie wins the tie, then tomorrow we again go after them but there's another human gone. So I think I have to vote Aldax
I like the first part of this post, even though it's bad for me.
1) I like that MEM made this post. He's pretty much confirmed human, so you don't have to wonder why human-MEM made the post... it's because he thinks I look more wolfy. I don't have to spend a lot of energy peeling back the layers, and neither does anyone else. If unknown-Ryvvn had made this post, it would have required so much more energy to decode...
"Does human-Ryvvn think Rictus is wolfly?"
"Is wolf-Ryvvn trying to implicate human-Rictus?"
"Is wolf-Ryvvn trying to implicate wolf-Rictus?"
At some point, somebody would have said "Ehh, lets just lynch one of them and see what it tells us."
2) I originally posted against AVS because I was suspicious of him and then Zark put him in his maybe-last-will-and-testament at the end of Day5.
But then I started waffling because my reasons for San being more human than AVS were based on twdog being a wolf. Once I took a minute and updated my notes (from the weekend) with twdog being blue, it removed one of the reasons I thought San was human.
So there I was, sitting as the first vote on AVS when I was leaning back towards San being a wolf. I started to doubt myself based on Day 5. On that day, I *knew* that twdog was a wolf, and I started the votes early on him. Now on Day 6 I was the first person on AVS and if AVS came up human it would look very bad for me.
When I feel strongly about a wolf/human, I don't mind having a terrible vote (see the last game...) but when I'm only 60% sure I'm a lot more cautious. So that's why I made my waffling post.
3) In my defense, I started the AVS votes when it was:
Aldax - 4 - 4xPenalty Votes
San - 4 - Mister E. Meat, Aldax, Visigoth, Omega
Clearasday - 2 - Hellheart, 7-zark-7
necklessone - 1 - Ryvvn
Omega - 1 - San
Visigoth - 1 - FurinMirado
Mister E. Meat - 1 - Meta4
If I was a wolf, I wouldn't have started a off-wagon on wolf-AVS. I would have voted Aldax to protect San (as you mentioned in your post) or thrown a second vote on CAD. Now if CAD is also a wolf, I might have sheeped onto San for Human Cred. Either way, I believe that starting the votes for AVS was a pretty human move.
Finally, Day 6 was very short, just two pages. I encourage everyone
to go back and see how the day played out... I 'm a bit worried that I'm just reinforcing my own suspicions, so I'm not yet prepared to call out the wolf who's been making the run for being the lone-wolf.
Charming, to the last.
