    A great and evolving thread on Gene Cunningham and Illinois Pinball. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/artifacts-of-gene-cunningham-illinois-pinball Nice pictures and a trip down memory lane.

    Maybe not real funny or exciting to read, but...
    This is Pinside!

    Someone trying to build an addams from scratch, pinsiders all gather to help with tips and how to!
    This is why pinside rules!

    Starts with a trade gone wrong, everyone (buyer, seller, Pinside itself, etc.) at fault, becomes a NJ thing, spare parts discussion occurs, then somehow tax evasion and a new argument between other pinsiders who are not the OP starts up......

    It's really marvelous and a beautiful example of why some people just should not post or at least not while they're at work.

    Quoted from spiroagnew:

    I'll nominate a series of threads.
    The Otaku Collection. It chronicles the sad flamout of an enthusiastic collector who was a little too big for his own breeches and burned a few too many bridges along the way.

    Otaku's 'ULTIMATE ELECTRO-MECHANICAL GUIDE' & EM THEORY OF OPERATION! = https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/otakus-ultimate-electro-mechanical-guide-em-theory-of-operation
    -----
    Otaku took his show on the road, to KLOV, and a reprise of the Pinside performance took place. I've included a KLOV thread as I think crazylevi is at his outlaw best when he posted there. Otaku changed his name to "Interlock" on KLOV if you are following along.
    Is this how Otaku acted here? = https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/is-this-how-he-acted-here
    (Title Deleted By Poster KLOV Thread) = https://forums.arcade-museum.com/showthread.php?t=421835

    These were good and this could be added as the next chapter. It's worth the read!

    Only Vid could return after a two year hiatus to share how he removed a pinball from a puppy that was supposed to be someone’s lunch.

    Suspected pinball selling scam is confirmed when pinsider gets confirmation that seller has the "Jimmy Hendericks" pinball machine in stock. Follow up investigation reveals it is the Jersey Jack Version!

    A Pinsider starts a thread soliciting opinions on what pin to buy then cant answer simple questions about a rare pin he once owned. With broken and bare minimum "Engrish" he eventually gets thrown out of his own thread and the topic is closed.

    The same guy also thought it be funny to troll people on leaked GnR photos before the topic is closed.

    Wow. Missed that one. What an ass. I hate people that type and don’t know how to spell. Or use abbreviations like “u”.

    Because typing two more letters is really a strain.

    And there is no way in hell that guy owns a Bigfoot.

    That drives me crazy all those abbreviations, lazy , just lazy I say!!

    #319 8 months ago

    "K" drives me nuts.

    Hitting that "O" before is just too time consuming, I guess.

    Ugh...typing an email or in a thread like you are texting is the worst. I have someone that does it at work and its so unprofessional especially when its a supervisor.

    #322 8 months ago

    you know what's worse typing? typing in a thread and signing the bottom of your post like it's a formal letter! (your name is the FIRST THING on every single post

    Not always. There's some pretty fucking ordinary links in here.

    Robin has locked this due to OP's request. Someone should create a new thread so all of OSOA's victims have one thread to discuss if they were made whole instead of numerous threads

    Definitely needs a new thread. Once it falls off the front page, its out of the spotlight and he can keep on stealing from new people to pay the old ones. This is of great importance to the community.

    New Pinsider has 5 of 9 topics closed in less than a year. Should there be an intervention?

    https://pinside.com/pinball/community/pinsiders/hbpinball/forum/topics

    #349 6 months ago

    Wondering if someone has hacked his account? His earlier topics are generally well-written. The later ones, well...

    #350 6 months ago

    Shortly after joining he posted this intelligent gem "Why are most pinball players white males?" It was all down hill after that.
