Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

The whistle has been blaring for nearly 2+ years, and almost close to 3 years.
People don't need a disclaimer, if they are willing to research information on locations not on PinSide. Even distributors felt the vibes based on the clear indications of commercial failure of FT, but decided not to offer actual facts to prevent business impacts.
People were just tone deaf and throwing "hate mail" against people who tried to help. There were plenty of early warnings regarding Heighway. "Insider" information was provided and dismissed as "attempts at sabotage". It hard for me to understand people who have lost money in the past from other similar circumstances repeated the same mistakes.
There are no new revelations regarding new pinball manufacturers, just blind trust with minimal understanding of industrial manufacturering processes regarding construction of pinball machines.
The worst part?
This will happen yet again, as I have watched in the past 30 years.
There are more fools with money, than those with common sense.

You now seem to want to put yourself with the crowd that was clearly "blowing the whistle" about HP for the last couple years.

Yet you have no links to these "insiders" except the anonymous "upset employee" we all saw. Yes they were conveniently deleted by the mysterious "powers that be".

I would never pre-order anything myself (can't understand why anyone would) but can you give us some examples of YOUR clear warnings about HP? And not just the boilerplate "don't preorder from anyone" advice that frankly a lot of us espouse regularly.

Maybe you have been sounding the alarm all this time in the original Alien thread and I simply missed it. Quite possible.

Quoted from DerGoetz:

I have never seen BlackKnight be part of any drama around here. People tried to troll him to lure him into drama, yes.
If anything he reminds me of Marvel's 'The Watcher' and at times I wonder whether he has a moonbase.
But them I remember that airballs would suck due to moon's low gravity and decide that is best for me to believe that he lives hidden somewhere in the Nevada desert.

lol Yeah I don't mind that he is as humorless as "The Watcher"... since pinball is SOOO serious

But he's clearly trying to now portray himself as someone who constantly warned everyone about HP's financial status all along.

I just wonder if this is true. Could be... I tend to gloss over posts where the poster actually quotes HIMSELF in his own post (rather endearing I suppose)

I do remember somebody posting publicly available financial data about HP but that wasn't him.

Quoted from chrisnack:

The number of personal attacks on people on this forum astound me... so much fricken drama!

Really? I've always felt it was rather tame and controlled compared to car forums, cooking forums and of course *video game forums*... now THERE you'll see remarks that actually *leave a mark*!

Damn I'm witty tonight... ok not really.

Oh my God thank you for reminding me of that thread... That may be my all time favorite.

Man you were NOT KIDDING. That thread was a quite the ride... love when it implodes in the end and some guy tells
TBK to "shut your helmet". lol
