This website is full of bullies, and pinside allows bullies. So if I want to rate a pinball game a 10 you get flagged, you get ripped on, if I want to like a certain brand of pinball, well that isn't acceptable. If I think there should be video modes again, you get 40 downvotes. Why are their moderators telling people to respect others opinions when the downvote system actually encourages bullies, disrespect of peoples opinions. If someone says this game is overprices, or I don't like this game, why should anyone downvote you for that? its your opinion. I thought this was America. Downvotes are dumb. If someone rates a game a 10 that is their rating no need for flags. I think Batman 66 is a 10, JJP Pirates is a 10, Creature from the Black Lagoon is a 10, why do you get flagged for your own opinion? Honestly this site needs to be overhauled. Who cares what game is ranked #1 or #100 it doesn't influence whether you like chocolate and the next guy likes strawberry.

Everyone has different wants, tastes, opinions, and even if you don't agree you can agree to disagree without trying to drown out those people with bully weapons. I think that is the biggest issue with pinside there is way to much bulling on this website. Way to much!

Quoted from vireland:

Australia? Next year, probably. Almost at 0% growth now, terrible exchange rate for Aussies.

If the Feds drop the interest rate, the exchange rates will come back to earth. We actually don't want a strong dollar in the midst of a trade war. Makes it harder for other countries to buy products from the USA like pinball games, or attractions I build. Canada usually has a weak exchange rate to the strong US dollar, which kills a lot of deals let me tell you.

I don't know how the conversation got switched, but I'm hoping the US will print more money, and drop rates. But trade deals we have with other countries is horrible... for example in Spain they charge over 30% tax to import from the USA. How can anyone sell into Spain at those rates?

I'd hate to see pinball manufacturing move out of the USA. You need better trade deals.
