    Last week there was a sorcerer thread here where I overdid it with the smartass routine. I sincerely apologize to The Guru, we talked it out and we’ve come to an understanding, settled our differences, and we will soon be running through a field of daisies together. Apparently the Guru sold his game to a pinsider here at his asking price and all parties are happy.

    Also, we’ve secured a Jackbot pinball machine for my friend in NYC who is dealing with a serious illness, and the Guru is making a $50 donation [edit- he sent 100!! Great!!] to help out with the purchase. He's a stand up dude and I regret pushing his buttons.

    Pinside- truly a place that brings people together!

    Feels like Kenada even more now that he's handing out $

    #5 1 year ago

    looks like i'm wasting yet another few hours, reading a closed sorcerer thread.

    #6 1 year ago

    This is a nice gesture.

    I didn't really think you overdid it with the smartass routine for what it's worth, felt just about like an even keel to me.

    #7 1 year ago

    the 50 clams is in my account and I'm sending it to the guy who's dealing with all this stuff. Thanks Guru!

    edit: he actually sent 100 bucks. Awesome!

    is this kind of like when 2 dudes beat the crap out of each other and then go have a beer together?

    So does that mean that CrazyLevi will have to shorten his name to just Levi?

    #13 1 year ago

    i dont like the polite side of crazy levi.

    So this is what happens when you live in a city of eight million people and have no real friends.

    #15 1 year ago

    This post is terrific and I admire people could admit fault and “shake hands”. Then I really admire getting a pinball machine to someone who really needs something in their life right now.

    There was no overdoing of anything on your part. That guy was an insufferable douchebag.

    #18 1 year ago

    Pinside is weird. I suggest that all the people who had beef on threads where a "hi my name is...." badge and meet up and some pinball festival or skype, facetime or something like that.

    In a few days, I will start a thread and apologize to Levi.

    I’m glad it all worked out but honestly that last thread was my favorite on pinside since waspinat0r left

    #23 1 year ago

    He was totally asking for it. And props to both of you on your generosity to your buddy. I’d be willing to contribute a little to your friends machine too as I feel pinball is good for the soul and a great distraction from whatever is ailing him/her.

    That was one of the craziest shitshow threads in awhile. Very cool you guys worked it out. Kudos to the Guru for donating.....is there a place for others of us to donate for a good cause? I need some good karma....

    I remember my first run in with you where you tried to push my buttons to get a rise...called me “nuts”, so I responded back with a picture of nuts in the shape of a heart, to which you replied that I was being passive aggressive or something...still not giving into your mind games, I remember saying “me so sorry” While upvoting your insulting posts towards me...finally you gave up by slinging one last insult at me

    I quickly realized that I was dealing with someone who wanted to pleasure himself by controlling my emotions and found it quite easy to disarm you...but this poor Guru guy fell for it, and while entertaining for most of us to watch, it was kind of painful to watch you twist this new member around your finger to the point where you told him how you now owned his thread...

    Its just unfortunate that you were allowed to bring out the worst in that new member to the point where he seems to be regarded by the community now as an..

    Glad things got worked out. Sick of price policing. People dont like the price ? Then dont buy it ! (not saying that you price policed but thats what i think got that thread heated up ).

    Dude, there’s a reason he’s called CrazyLevi. Kinda like Bad Bad Leroy Brown, it’s kinda built into the name so you know what your dealing with.

    Just got back from seeing Udo with friends. I bet you like Accept!

    Totally out of line, o-din. New York has a population of 8.5 million.

    How is Udo sounding these days? Hopefully his set featured ‘Balls to the Wall’.

    In all seriousness, I think there is something to be learned here. As a newish member (coming up on one year), I am terrified about making a thread for a game I may want to sell. In my opinion, the for sale threads should be a place to ask and answer questions about a game or validate a seller. Instead, the mentioned Sorcerer thread turned into a bunch of guys bullying a newbie. Right or wrong, high price or low, he had a right to his opinion. I thought it was too high for the quality of game, so I saw it and passed. But I didn't feel the need to belittle the guy or call him names. I am appalled that the moderators didn't shut the thread down or expel Levi for leading it down the path it went. I would hate to have my for sale thread hijacked by people calling me names because they think I'm over pricing my game. But I am glad you guys worked it out. Just wished it wouldn't have gone so far.

    i took the liberty of leaving you a yelp review...

    Yeah...but will I run off to Israel with all your cash like the real Crazy Eddie?!

    Edit- I see you covered that lol

    Like gravel in a blender, how he’s supposed
    To sound. Yeah your encore: fast as a shark and balls to the wall. It was great. My head hurts and I’m going back to sleep.

    #41 1 year ago

    It was the right thing to do, but I still don’t like the dude.

    Yep, gravel in a blender, classic Udo! Two of my favorite Accept songs for the encore, wish I was there.

    i was baffled by the trolling allowed with the lame meme after lame meme people were making. The kid had no chance after one of the moderators even jumped in on the price policing and said this pin would of been sold already if not outrageous price! Good ol'pinside.

    Saw Accept way back in the 80s. Cool band. Loved the album and song Metal Heart.

    He wasn't really price policed. He asked for input and got defensive when it was given to him.

    I think the community was very reasonable -at first- and the OP escalated again and again and again.

    At the very end he claimed to sell his pin on eBay and then edited his post to remove the reference when I called it out.

    So I'm glad he donated to a worthy cause. But not trustworthy. Not nice. Not a stand up person.

    Another Sorcerer is now for sale for $1599, with a playfield about as bad and possibly other issues with a bunch of "great price should sell fast" comments. The seller on that one simply posted the problems with the machine and didn't tangle with people.

    #46 1 year ago

    I didn't think Levi over did anything. The guru was abrasive and condescending to a community he knew nothing about right off the the bat. I felt like Levi was the guy keeping him in check, that's all. I'm glad they patched things up. Too bad the guru can't redeem himself and is not allowed back here. I'd like to hear from him after he cooled down.

    It was the OP and only OP spouting profanity and eventually melting down and slinging explicit and bizarrely specific homophobic insults.

    Everyone else was talking about pinball machine prices.
