Well, I won't be awake for the lynch, so I will have to cast my final vote now, if ever.
Matt: I'm not sure I fully trust his claim as Marvin. Indeed, if something 'bad' happens to everyone who voted for him, it cannot be game-breakingly strong. If everyone who votes for him dies, for example, or is recruited into a cult. He probably either roleblocks the target, or some form of cop is made publicly available (of questionable sanity, otherwise he would not say it is a bad thing) or something like that.
On a side note, he does bring up role speculation about Marvin, so that gives him some credit. I'm not going to vote for him, although he pings as slightly scummy.

First, we have t1mm voting for matt96 with a shallow reason. He unvotes, but the fact that he provided a shallow reason makes him a bit scummy to me. He voting for matt96 gives me a it of suspicion. Voting for matt96 would start a bandwagon, so I did so. If he roleclaims Marvin, and no one counterclaims him, I will unvote.
I'll bite, lets see what T1mm has done this game, and I'll think about it:
Looking through his posts, his first content post is a gut-vote on Matt, purely on gut. He later explains his vote based on one of Matt's post regarding scum speculation. Next, he tells JSO not to ask Cj to lurk, and then he exits a bandwagon which is forming rapidly behind him. Out of those actions, only the first pings my scumdar, while the other 2 seam somewhat townish. I'm getting a neutral reading on him. What I have noticed is that Cj is spending a lot of effort (read: 3 different posts) directing attention toward Tim. He votes for a lot of other players too, but he's actually given extra attention Tim's way. He is giving a strong Jester vibe, so I don't want to vote him, but it feels like there is an equally likely probability of him being scum... hmm...
It's late, so I only have time for 1 more rolespec before I can decide who to vote for...
JSO: So his actions are: Suggest possible roles, more of that + suspects Vogons are mafia (like everyone else), tells Cj to go back to lurking, claims to have been wanting to redirect attention away from Cj, his only content-heavy post (sort of),and suggests Matt is Arthur dent. In the content-heavy post, he defends his active-lurking, and FOS's ahammel for proposing possible scum. Ahammel does give reasons why those players are on his list, JSO does bring up that the list is rather large (given a random sample of 4 players, there is a 54% chance one of them is scum... wait, that's not too probable...) actually, scratch that point about it being a good point, but it is some form of discussion. My main issue with JSO is he is active-lurking (although quite frankly I tend to do that in a lot of the games I play as well.) Still, it is a documented scum tactic, last I checked, so... I'm still not decided.
So to summarize the people currently being voted for:
Matt: Threatens bad things to happen to whoever votes for him. (Not bad things to anti-town players specifically, bad things in general.) Claims to be Marvin.
Cj: Muddying water, behaving like either a panicing mafia, a new, inexperience player, or a jester.
JSO: Active lurking
I'm going to vote JSO, because he does appear to be hiding in plain sight: lots of low-content posts to make himself appear active. I also want to see if anything comes from the Cj-t1mm dynamic, and I want to give Matt the benefit of the doubt, for now.Vote JSO
