    You act like this was resolved amicably between you and Boob and it should have remained private. You are missing several points:

    1. You didn't do ANYTHING until the pinball community got involved. So, no, this wasn't resolved between you two. You did not voluntarily step up and do the "right" thing until you, or someone close to you, realized it was just bad business to put it off.

    2. You sent a screenshot of a check you sent him and posted it here as proof of your good intentions and integrity. Then you cancelled the check! You never mentioned it so how would the community know?!? Cancelling the check was a real douche move. You definitely owed it to him.

    3. Your offer to "lend a hand" to Boob is so gross and disgusting. I do not understand how you don't see this. You lied to him. You deceived him. You crapped on his generosity. If I were him just hearing your name would make me sick. Why would I want to look at your face? Why would I want to let your nefarious ass in my house or near my equipment?

    4. The fact that Boob is happy with this resolution (unconfirmed) is immaterial. All that shows is that Boob is a freaking Angel and deserves wings. How do you not understand how unbelievably awesome Boob treated you?! Both before and after. You did nothing noble. He could have taken you to court for damaging his machine. The fact that he didn't hound you for the money or berate you for your appalling behavior doesn't make you in the right.

    5. Look at your feedback ratios. People here arent basement dwelling trolls (well...unless your game room is in your basement!). We are professionals, business owners and hard workers. This is an expensive hobby and we have better things to do than to waste our time downvoting strangers. You are earning those downvotes because your way of interacting with society is just gross and disgusting. I'm sorry I've used disgusting so many times in this post but it just fits your behavior perfectly.

    Gameseum, I'm begging you. Please STFU. It's so obvious you are rambling about yourself in the third person, and really nobody cares anymore. You made right with the parts, but still are a long way from any kind of respect from anyone here. Please, just stop.

    Even just with covid, I wouldn't want a person coming into my home for something like that....And yeah, definitely wouldn't want to have to spend afternoon side by side working with guy who jacked my stuff in first place, regardless.

    Seems the bigger reality is boob is a good person and also probably just accepted the best he felt he was going to get any time soon out of the damages done....not as amicably thrilled as Otaku and friends try to make it sound.

    Nothing like repeatedly going on a public forumn and claiming it's not public.

    #2811 10 months ago

    Here is the whole back story on this shit show for those who missed it. The infamous flood thread.

    Boob went out of his way to help the guy. You think after all this, and after additional information came out in this thread that there would have been more humility, genuine remorse and apology with no excuses and no more baloney.

    Just reading that first page, you can see how everyone went out of their way to support him and offer words of encouragement, even Robin.

    Of course, we all know what he did with that goodwill. Between the GoFundMe campaigns, the Otaku Guide to EMs fiasco, his condescending attitude toward some really terrific Pinsiders, the constant lying and finally the Escelera saga, that goodwill is long gone.

    Don't forget that he made disparaging remarks about my wife.

    #2815 10 months ago

    Hey at least he was able to add 16 games to his museum and send Boob parts for the Escalara. Very successful for someone that just had a Gofund me for a rainy day fund even though he said that he didn't need it. Remember he saw all of this coming and prepared accordingly.

    #2816 10 months ago

    Don't sweat the 100 bucks, guys. I'm not. (Although it is ridiculous that he posted a screen shot but somehow didn't really send it. Omission and obfuscation seem to be the ongoing MO.) The support everybody has shown here is the GREAT part of Pinside...and if more people were like all of you I would have never felt the need to take a couple years off from this place. The way you've all gotten my back is worth more than the money, and at this point if it showed up, I'd have to tuck it away for a time I could buy you all a drink at a future pinball show...

    ...but then I'd have to sell my Escalera to cover the cost because it would be WAY more than $100.

    All of Pinside invited of course. We can call it #thealmightyboobfest. If anyone reads that the wrong way, well.....

    Thanks, buddy! And you can't really read that the wrong way because I'm 55 and have some B-cups myself. Just don't try to go to second base with me.

    Note to self: If yzfguy shows up at this shindig, there will be no booze for anybody else.

    And a HUGE THANK YOU to JodyG who just donated to Pinside in my name to turn my heart red. (I pay Pinside when I sell a machine, but never re-upped the annual fee because I'm still bitter about being put in Pinside jail for criticizing a moderator who was overstepping his authority (and he's no longer a moderator!))

    JodyG ... you're the first on my list for a drink, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate the gesture, and you're an incredible person (although I really wish you had donated for kids with illnesses instead - there's nothing worse than a kid that has to worry about dying, IMHO).

    Quoted from ISayIts4MyKids:

    Then you cancelled the check!

    I tried to cancel a check, its pretty much pointless. I forget how long the hold is (30 days?), but eventually you'll be able to cash it again. Unless the person who wrote the check keeps remembering to put holds on it every 30 days. This might be with my bank only, but the bank manager said that's just how it works.

    #2829 10 months ago

    This entire thread feels like I am dealing with my teenage kids. Always try to get the last word, express outrage when they are called out for any bad behavior, make restitution (including some heartless "sorry" (which we never got from Steven BTW)) but seem to learn little from it. It is really hard for a teenager to put themselves in the place of someone else. But with my kids, my job as a parent is to hold the line out in front of them so that when I can't be there, they eventually make good decisions in life and know they are not a completely independent agent in this world. Really, when you read all of this, the only things that stand out starkly are that he is incredibly immature and that his parents didn't do a very good job in this arena. One can only hope that as he goes forward in life he learns a little more that all our roles in this world are not just to enhance our own individual goals and happiness. And what he just has zero appreciation for right now is that this will ultimately make him a happier person long term, because you gain the most satisfaction from the relationships your build and the people you help, not the things you have and the mistakes you hide behind.

    #2830 10 months ago
    Quoted from RCA1:

    So you are backing out of your previous offer to buy a brand new escalara when you can, and swap for the damaged/repaired one. Just wanted to be clear.

    Quoted from Gameseum:

    This idea was never proposed or confirmed by Steven or any of us, and I encourage you to find a quote that cements this as any sort of final offer we made.

    OK

    Quoted from Otaku:

    Honestly, I'd love to just buy you a new one of the same model, and you can trade me the old one if you like and skip all the other stuff

    I guess when your 'business' account hits that level, the best thing to do for your business reputation is to just deactivate your account....not recognize where/who the problem is and try to rectify as much as possible.

    I owe you a public apology for that. I am sorry.

    I regret my actions and ask for forgiveness in time and when you feel you can.

    I have since corrected my mistake to an upvote.

    Thank you in advance for your understanding and for the support in the matter. I have grown older and wiser and feel I am now a better person for learning from my mistakes.
