Quoted from CrazyLevi:

OK, let's rank the hobbyists!
1. Players With Skills - just like me (shocker!).
How about you guys? Let's get pretentious up in here!

Hmmm...yeah that's pretty good although I'd put Players without Skills above restorers; I mean they're trying at least the poor bastards. Restoring might have been honest love of the game work in the old days; but it's just a cash cow now.

Quoted from Otaku:

Not everybody who restores flips their games, a lot of them put TOO MUCH money into their restorations for their keeper machines... so yes, still a cash cow

And they either enjoy them forever, or try to sell us $3500 T2

Quoted from 27dnast:

These two kinds of players look at games so differently..

You think so? Interesting.

Quoted from pookycade:

I figure if I ever got too good at actually playing pinball it would eventually become boring.

Man you'd have to be super human good for that to happen

Quoted from o-din:

There are 168 hours in a week of which you probably only need 35-40 of for sleep. So that leaves over 120 hours.
If you are not lazy or waste too many hours at a job, that leaves plenty of time. This my time is limited sounds like a lame excuse to not get things done that you want done.

Sorry 20-30 hours a week are spent on hold with AT&T

Quoted from PismoArcade:

Looks like the OP took exception to being moderated...He's now listed as "inactive."
I've read this thread three times and I swear I can't see how he was offended.

It happens...people get burned out and just have to take a break.

EDIT: Oh but the short version is odin

Quoted from dmbjunky:

I couldn't even tell where the moderation was.

"(-Original topic title and content restored by moderator: please do not alter the complete content of a topic / opening post once a topic is actively being posted to-) "

I believe the OP deleted/changed the name of the thread and tried to remove himself/posts and Mods wiped out what he did, after that he went inactive. I can see getting upset by it.

Quoted from metallik:

Why are some people allowed to change their mind and edit away their posts after they've had time to reflect, but others are forced to keep their posts up, to the point of a moderator actually re-posting on their behalf?

I can kind of see it for a thread title...but you're own posts does seem very strange.
