I think one of the dead-silent (that means dAnzac (though he's far away so it's semi-understandable), Aqua, or m16a) are mafia. In fact, it's quite possible that two of them are mafia. m16a fired the first shot, and dz fired a shot after this. Aqua's done his usual say-nothing, which is impossible to read (though places him high on the suspicion list).
m16's reasoning was that dz checked in without providing any other info. However, lambskin had "checked in" prior to this point with a "I don't like revealing the twins roles". No reasoning or anything behind it, just a nay vote. Sluggers had checked in saying something about wanting the full roster to be posted on the first page, and that was his total contribution. I don't see what the difference is between danzac saying "I'm going to soccer" and Lambskin saying "I don't like revealing twins' roles" without any reasoning, after many had come in and voiced opposition to revealing the twins roles.
So m16a fired an opening shot: fine. That's completely reasonable for a townie to do, just to kick the game forward. However, he hasn't come back to do anything else. So I'm not feeling good about that opening shot anymore. It smells suspicious. However, danzac also reacted to this shot not with any real logic, but by jumping on the player already suspected by the town. That smells fishy too. They both could easily be mafia. Reasonable to think that m16a jumps in, fires the opening shot at his teammate to make it look like he isn't mafia, then danzac comes on and fires at the most obvious townie. It's a good mafia play (provides some separation between m16a and danzac). M16a's vote deserves further review; it has no logic behind it, and therefore, the fact that he voted for DANZAC may or may not have meaning (the attack looks way too "random" to actually be random).
I'm guessing one of these guys is mafia, quite possibly both. I'd like to hear something from both of these guys though before I change my vote. It'd also be nice to hear something (anything) from Aqua, outside of "I'm reviewing the thread" and "I'm in Chicago". Neither of those is at all useful.
Also, to respond to Inuckchuk's post, we should go back and look at Aqua's m16a's, and danzac (Aussie)'s actions in previous games.
As for Aqua, is he always this quiet throughout the enitre game? If so, then he's not really helping anything either. But I don't think that means it's a good idea to get rid of him. We have a few legitimate Mafia candidates here; let's focus on them....
