Quoted from dtown:
I'm curious. Why? I mean...this IS a pinball show. Are the cool pinball guys gonna beat me up or take me in the bathroom....
I'll tell you why. If there isn't already an existing badge hanging there, it's like you're walking around saying, "Hey! I'm on Pinside!" like that's some badge of honor or something. It's a freakin' forum. I just think it's kind of douchey, but to each their own. I won't do it. I really do think it'll make me look like the dork pictured above. I'll proudly wear it at ReplayFX when I have a badge on a lanyard already. Not so bad then.
And I wouldn't take you into the bathroom and beat you up because you'd probably kick my fat ass around the joint, then shove my head in the toilet and give me a swirly.
