Werewolf Ethics Question

Hypothetical question:

If, while playing Werewolf, someone accidentally includes me on a pm that describes their role or side, can I act on that information in the game? Obviously, to reveal it to everyone would be wrong, but am I allowed to act on it? What does Wereolf ethics say?

Werewolf ethics dictate you report it to the dungeon master (or whatever Sir Foz calls himself) and leave it to him to determine if the balance has been altered, and what, if anything, to do about it.

I wasn;t sure if the answer would be "Don't do anything," or "Tell the GM" or "If they were stupid enough to include you, then they should reap what they sow"

I think if you learned anything, you have to tell the GM. If he says "if they were stupid enough ..." then, well, that's his call. I look at it like when you play tennis - if the ball isn't out, but your opponent thought it was, you are obligated to tell him it was in.

I'm with Cronin and hoops. It's the GM's game, he needs to know and decide how to handle it.

Tell the GM, and let him decide for better or worse
