    was gonna forget about it
    but then I posted about it
    I dropped the escalera
    Got called out by Pinside
    and then of course I lied.

    If anybody on Randy's list would like some #paytheboob vinyl or I could go back and make some #Ipaidtheboob, the offer still stands that I will send them some free.

    Just PM me

    Quoted from beelzeboob:

    So I've place the order for a new Escalera with zmeny and this long national nightmare is soon to be over, thanks to some amazing Pinsiders. Please look over this list and let me know if you donated and I missed you...then there's some important stuff at the end of this post:

    What shall become of the Otaku enhanced Escalera? Details young man, we here on team-boob want to know.

    Well, he's giving me quite a bit more than that. The Ramen part is just a goof...at least my wife hopes so, because she said if he actually gives me a case of Ramen, she's going to stick it up my ass and to the left.

    You May Be Right
    but it probably just a matter of trust to tell her about it.
    She’s got a way with the big shot.
    Don’t ask me why.

    With todays litigous society every Post here opens you up to possibly be involved in lawsuit.
    Seems like a lot of regular people, and some not so are suing for damages. A lot of them win huge settlements.
    All this guy needs is a 10 dollar law student and it could cause a lot of misery. It isn't worth it, let it go.

    Not sure, do you have a documented Post history that could be construed as slander or defamation of character?
    It wouldn't surprise me if someone motivated by anger discovers a way to make perceived critics lives miserable.
    This happens everyday, sucks to be caught up in it.
    Not worth the chance.

    That might provide the chance to make a re-enactment video with the escalara ! Might want to save the broken one as exhibit A. But what actor should best play old taco in the video. It’s a bit of a head scratcher. May need to set up a go fund me to recruit major talent

    I actually like Ramen. Not that brand, but I do like it.

    So I thought he posted a picture here of an undelivered package? Did that ever get delivered? I remember seeing tracking info but not seeing it got delivered. Was that for $100 and he is supposed to give you $500 or something? I'm just going off what people told me.

    That was the start of a payment plan I think? But then after posting the tracking info he decided to cancel it and send parts instead and offer his labor to fix it (ignoring the fact that he does not know how to fix it and that anyone in boobs situation wouldn’t want Stephen near their house, let alone The f’d up escalara). Of course this was all found out days and days later after the $$ never shows up

    Steven...uh...I mean Phil-Lee,

    Do you have any idea how ignorant you sound? Can you imagine approaching this "$10 law student":

    You: Someone on the internet hurt my feelings by saying things that are true. Will you help me sue them?

    Student: Geez, that sounds fun but I'm pretty busy with school and books and having a life

    You:. But it could be millions of dollars!!
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    How do you not understand that the Pinside community are not a bunch of trolls? There are actual lawyers in this thread. Did you see how the community came together to try to make Boob whole? Some of the people that helped have never met or even interacted with him. And I bet some of the people helped out not for any affection for Boob but because of their distaste for Steven and wanting to wipe the earth of the legacy of his misdeeds.

    So what do you think would happen if someone were to try some idiotic legal attack? You saw how Pinside united over an Escalera that wasn't even theirs. What do you think happens when they are threatened directly? A bunch of old guys with money and free time isn't a groups of people you want as an enemy.

    If your true goal is to be helpful and de-escalera (sorry! Couldn't help it. Deescalate) things then you should reach out to Steven.

    The only way you can prove libel is if you can prove that it had an adverse affect on your business...and on a good day, that's really tough to prove. Especially on a forum with a tight-knit community on a thread that literally tens of people are involved in.

    On the bright side, the next time my wife feels the need to get drunk in Napa, I'm gonna have to remember to stop in your area and buy you a drink.

    #3234 5 months ago

    Oh no! I'm buying you drinks!

    #getboobdrunk

    I think your situation resonates for many of us because some of us have had a Steven or 2 (or 3 or 4...some of us are slow learner's) in our lives.

    #3235 5 months ago

    Quick update: A few more generous people have donated to the Escalera cause, and I want you to know I'm adding you to my list, even though I can't edit the earlier post with the list of names anymore. If you donated, I'll be contacting you for your shirt size and shipping address. If you don't want a free gift for your donation, just let me know (but you really should!).

    If you ordered a shirt from yuppicide (I ordered 2), please know that none of that money goes to me--it's going elsewhere. I thought I was helping my own cause! Oh well...live and learn. But his shirts are really great, and paytheboob.com is still open.

    Incorrect. It's called gratitude. And it's also about warning people that think they may be helping me by buying something that they are not.

    There's a drain button on each thread. If you have nothing more to contribute here, why don't YOU use it and move on?

    Guy finally gets new unit, no thanks to original tool, and finally relieved a little of the stress etc...and maybe feels a small (justified) victory.

    People taking time to post saying drain, stop, move on, etc. Is kinda just like shitting on that a bit, to me is all.

    Quoted from ISayIts4MyKids:

    How do you not understand that the Pinside community are not a bunch of trolls?

    Well, it shouldn't be. Pinside should represent a higher standard, the highest standard to be honest, with any situation involving Pinball. Period.
    Hasseling or organized debasement from Members toward others in the Trade should be carefully scrutinized before allowed to escalate. It doesn't matter if you do not like a person, Gang Pressure shouldn't be the norm.

    Quoted from ISayIts4MyKids:

    A bunch of old guys with money and free time isn't a groups of people you want as an enemy.

    I would hazard a guess this is not what Pinside represents, and shouldn't promote.

    Quoted from ISayIts4MyKids:

    What do you think happens when they are threatened directly?

    Then they should wake up and realize they do not represent the future of Pinside, they are hindering its progress, directly, perhaps it is time they back off so a great platform can move forward.
