Forgive me if this has been brought up. I did a search and didn't find anything.
First, I want to say I love the comic. Rereading it three times since it started is probably why I've ever noticed this. I was just wondering if it's been brought up, if a logical explanation has been found, or if I'm just digging too deep.

It's suggested that Stanley speak the Foolamancer's name to snap him out of his insanity. The last line says "Stanley does not recall it."
Earlier on, Parson got his 3D glasses for breakfast.

We're told that the classes allow him to see "what every other warlord and caster can see naturally... unit stats."

Stanley "can't see [Parson's] points" indicating that he can normally see people's stats.

Through a thinkagram, with his 3D glasses, Parson sees Jack Snipe's stats.
The only things that makes sense that I can think of are:
-Other people don't see names (meaning the glasses rock)
-While away from the town Stanley can't see people's numbers.
Was the solution to this pointed out somewhere and I didn't notice?
Thanks to any thinkers out there that retained more info than I and can figure this out.
