It's true it doesn't prove he's town. All it really does is keep him from being insta-lynched (If he can't prove his powers than he might as well be lying about having them and that's a situation where Lynch All Liars actually applies.) Is that worth much? Probably not at this point.
Secondly, I haven't said much about the Neb vs. Edoc/Aage scenario until the Jonty lynch was sorted out (For the reason that Edoc mentions) but I'm reevaluating my stance. The connection between Jonty and Neb is not nearly as strong as Edoc and Aage are playing it out to be (The case for their connection is about 50% wifom and 45% misinterpreting Neb's post (intentionally? don't know)). First off Edoc you said:

Kinda do. No lynches are not permitted
. We could never really determine if he is town or not either.
Based off of this it's not difficult to see how someone could understand that to be Edoc'sil saying that no lynches are against the rules. Also in scenarios where rules are misrepresented by a player it is not at all uncommon for another player to post the rule that has been misinterpreted to show the misinterpretation being made. So Aage and edoc's argument that he's trying to suggest that Neb is trying to lead town towards a no lynch is IMO witch hunt bull shit.

Now you have seen that he is unlikely to receive a large support to lynch and you refer to our ability to NL but do not suggest it yourself because the one who suggests NL usually dies. You just casually bring it to everyone's attention, perhaps setting something up to pounce on. Then you vote Aage for extrapolating (suposedly) too far that you would perhaps support an no lynch, which is not a valid case even if it were factual. You by implication have tenancies to believe that a NL may be appropriate. You did in fact bring it up, and coincidentally gave jonty a door he could try to run through and live till tomorrow.
TLDR: I think jonty and neb are scum buddies. I want to hang jonty and test my scumbuddy hypothesis if jonty in fact proves to be scum.
That being said, the argument about Neb possibly splitting the vote does hold at least some water.
All in all, Edoc's attitude doesn't surprise me much, he usually tends to be one of the more aggressive players out there and while I disagree with a good portion of his argument, the aggressiveness is fairly par for the course and I would be more inclined to feel that Neb or Aage are scum (based on how Jonty flips) than Edoc. I just do not believe there's the strength in the Neb case as is being presented. Teams of two might make sense anyways.
