Quoted from GorillaBiscuits:

Don't forget to add the Beatles dimpling thread you started

Boom Roasted, or Mic drop seems appropriate.

Quoted from ToucanF16:

Not steel the OPs thread, but here’s the perfect TAF! scottinsgfny has posted this TAF FS ad

Posting an ad for the same game at a lower price is exactly the definition of "Steeling a thread". Now you know and you are welcome for the free class regarding internet sales etiquette.

So let it die already.

You control your own experience. Drain the topic. Boom, it dies, for you!

Quoted from Reznnate:

Why hasn't someone who has a full and proper appreciation for pinball history purchased this yet?
Seems like the perfect game for the guys who feel the need to clarify the difference between 'restomod' and a proper, legal, biblical 'restoration'.

If I had the means, id buy it, just to piss people off!

While I have no idea why this pin is priced so high, its also a fail on the mods to limit negative comments.

This "Should be" a buy or sell section, not just another discussion forum. If you aren't buying, why do you care? In the classic car industry, its called " There is a buyer for every seat". Also, one mans junk is another mans treasure. Show some respect.

Quoted from jmountjoy111:

I’m not sure you are using painstakingly the same way the rest of us do. Lol

You guys do all understand that forums are designed to voice opinion correct? I don’t make many negative comments at all, and I will admit some threads get toxic, but that doesn’t mean negative comments should not be allowed

For sale threads should be between buyer and seller. Its not meant to trash a thread and the op if you disagree with the price. Some people have a lack of respect for other people though. I blame the parents.

Quoted from Coyote:

Disagree there. That's what PMs are for.
As a serious buyer, I'm not going to communicate my terms for buying in a public thread.
As a seller, if I don't want comments about my ads, then I will not go out of my way to "create a thread for the ad", which is off by default.

After communicating my thoughts to the mods, they let me know that the OP chose to allow discussion. Learn something new every day. Still seems disrespectful to trash the OP and his ad, but that's what we do on the internet.

Carry on...

Quoted from vdojaq:

Relax, no need to get bent out of shape. Gryszzz is actually one of the good guys around here. Maybe a little rough when he has had 3 - 4, OK 12 beers, but he is a die hard pinballer!

Gryzzz iz the one getting bent out of shape. So Im a lapdog because I am capitalist and don't care what this guy prices his game at. I suggest he not try to be the top cop of the pinside price police. Some people just feel they need to tell others how to live.

Quoted from Tranquilize:

I generally agree, but only to a certain extent. If you ask a realtor to sell your house for 10x it's value, he'll tell you to go have sex with your hat. Why? You would be insulting his intelligence and every person in the market's intelligence. This inflated price should be reserved for eBay, where bs is expected. Otherwise, the op should be ready for a serious flaming. It's so ridiculous that it must be trolling. Seems to be working well.

He is not looking for a broker/realtor, this is a one on one transaction. Also, said broker/realtor could turn down the client as a waste of time for being so overpriced.

And yes I even talked to the mods privately about the roasting and they pointed out that he allowed discussion when he placed the ad, which I think is dumb, but anyway that was his choice. I just dont understand why anyone is getting worked up over it, is all. Hell, maybe he doesnt want to actually sell it, but told the ol lady he would try.

Quoted from vdojaq:

Pinside is acting as the broker then!

Lol. So they get a cut? If so, or if they are the broker, then they must not disagree with the price.

Quoted from jmountjoy111:

No kidding. I couldn’t agree with this quoted post more!! I really do not get what roostking is trying to defend either. I’ve sold a ton of games and list every single one of them as a forum topic for discussion. I never have any backlash from pinsiders about pricing or condition. It does seem pretty babyish of you to go to the mods about it. This guy lists a pin for a ridiculous amount and then gets called out on. He has no intelligent responses to the people that called his bull on it. xtheblackknightx even shows that it wasn’t truly the number one TZ anyway and if you’ve read this site for long you would quickly be able to tell that he is incredibly knowledgeable regarding those things. It’s a dumb price for a valuable, but not $65K valuable, machine
Moral of the story.... if you don’t want to be made fun of, don’t do stupid things

I'm defending his right to price his property as he sees fit. Never thought it would be such a difficult concept to grasp, but here we are. And people getting bent out of shape and calling people names is just the icing on the cake. What I don't understand is why you guys care so much? The world has enough hall monitors already.

#822 2 years ago
Quoted from vdojaq:

And we all have the right to tell him that he is out of his tree.

Question get's thrown right back at ya! None of us went to the mods either.

You are right, I did, but it was more about the fact we can trash someone's for sale thread, as I had done it before. I think it is just disrespectful to trash a for sale thread, be it this one, or any other. The mods let me know that the OP allowed it to happen, so I have dropped it. Either way, I would have figured it would be a simple thing to just move on if you weren't interested. I was wrong.

#824 2 years ago
Quoted from Tranquilize:

I'll throw it back at you: how can you not understand that overpricing something 10X in ANY market will draw criticism from consumers. This would happen in a barter system for the impoverished all the way to Ferrarri sales. What we are doing is normal. You running around and complaining about it is not.
"This bannana is $14."
"You are an outrageous fool!"
"Wait till the bazaar landlord hears what you just said to me! This is free market!!!"

Well i do fault the OP for allowing discussion, that is his fault. Now, how many times do people have to give their opinions on the price? Apparently over and over, until they get a ban.

And obviously, I can understand when something that is overpriced, as I believe in capitalism. I mean, its still for sale, right? Of course this pin is over priced, given that Black Knight weighed in and knows his shit better than anyone here possibly.

State your opinion and move on if not interested in buying. What a concept!

Quoted from YeOldPinPlayer:

Says the guy with fifteen posts in someone else's FS thread...

Yea because I am being personally attacked now. Good to see you can count, how many fingers am I holding up genius?

With that, I'll probably get a ban. So the Paul Blarts of the world, carry on!

#829 2 years ago
Quoted from vdojaq:

OMG, now you are the victim?
And Paul Blarts? You are the one who ran to the mods!!!
I won't call you a closet snowflake, but maybe you should quit wearing your wife's underwear?

Lol. Ok, since you have also proven you have no decency or common sense, I'm going to step up, get banned, and tell you that if you ever step to me from behind your KB, ill handle you easy... See ya round, Paul..

#832 2 years ago
Quoted from jmountjoy111:

Now this thread is FINALLY getting interesting.

Maybe it will devolve so much that so many people get banned, a real transaction can take place, vs. Shit talking, KB hiding commies trying to set a price on something they don't own.
