Except you're going on the basis that they're lurking, even though it hasn't been very long. But what I think you're doing is pushing for the people that are active to go for a lurk-vote prematurely; thus eliminating a townie.
Two days is long enough to get a post in. I don't see a reason to drag things out if it's not necessary. I like for things to happen and I like to encourage people to participate. Voting is a great way to get people to participate, and I never asked anyone to follow my vote. The most pro-town you can do in a game of mafia is making up your own mind and not follow people blindly.
Posts and reactions gives us information and the most valuable thing to us right now is information. The more information we've got the better chance we stand at finding our mobsters.

So like I said the mafia get their free kill regardless but we (will likely) lose out on a townie. I do agree that this reduces the amount of discussion and therefore information being tossed out in the open, though. That's why I said give it a few days and if we still have absolutely no clue, then we go for the no vote; but I meant that as a last resort.
We can not rely on a potential cop to find our targets for us. Votes and lynches gives us a lot of information while still giving us at least the chance to hit mafia. Like Angua said, No-lynch = no information and a free mob-kill and it will leave us at the exact same point, and equally clueless, tomorrow as we are today only with one less town player.

They usually get told who their team-members are in their role-PM and since this is a vanilla game I assume it's business as usual.
The way to a man's heart goes through his ribcage. Screaming "KALIMA KALIMA" also helps.
