There have been so many 'joke' votes on this Day 1 that I'm finding it really difficult to pick up any hints about who might be mafia. They could very easily just join in with the voting in a way that their serious attempt to lynch a townie gets lost in a bunch of non-serious voting.
Or they could be sitting back and not throwing out any votes at all! (Yes, I know I haven't cast a vote yet, but that's because I don't like throwing out votes left and right - I like to wait for a reason to vote for someone).
Looking at those people who have cast votes so far:
Big Pimpin: 7
The Show: 1
Chris & Teddy: 0
The two guys with 7 are both newbies at this game, I think, so it could be just a load of joke votes...or one or both of them could be mafia and throwing out all these votes to make themselves look like they are not mafia, because no one expects the mafia to be so liberal in their voting! With me?!
But that's not enough for me to cast a vote for either of them yet. I'm looking more for someone who has kept fairly quiet, but has cast 1 vote during the midst of a load of 'joke' votes. There are a few people with just one vote to date, but one person kind of sticks out for me:

This is the way the Jason voted last game when he was mafia.
(he then immediately turned around and voted for whoever pointed out that he was being weird and voted for him, so I am putting my neck on the line)Vote: J35J
J35J has only made 4 posts so far. The first said "hmmmmmmm", this one was the second one. A nice quiet vote for JT (who had already had a number of people voting for him), which has only been picked up on by Mookie so far. The third post didn't say much at all - just that he wasn't mafioso and wasn't changing his vote, with an odd use of a 'mischievous' smiley. Now we've just had his fourth post, which repeats his jokey(?) reason to vote for JT as well as casting suspicion on several other people at once. Classic mafia misdirection away from himself.
None of this is conclusive, of course, but it's enough for me to think that Mookie was on the right track with his vote.Vote: J35J
