Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

Its everywhere, right now.

It sucks. Wasn't this supposed to be the sport of rebels, and outcasts? Now it's just a bunch of rich white dudes deciding who can play where and angry jerks who somehow found another hobby to infect.

Im sorry, I dont see it this way.

I have spent now 8 months at a new "job" since I retired, and it has been in social media analysis, from the sociological and political perspective.
This forum, and Pinball has been about the best there is in focus and civility.
The events of the world do creep in, sometimes in mood or attitude, and indeed their are a few bumps.
But Id rather be here, than any other board because of all the great people, not the few that might
not agree.

Sorry that you feel this way, maybe its time to tune out and play some pinball!

I mean it does have more value than an echo chamber / anger pit such as tiltforums, but still. There a certain few people on here who rant and rave more than the others, and to an outsider / someone new to the industry, it comes off as... hostile. Like, people knowing what's what and that's it.

BTW it's kinda condescending to suggest that "well, if you don't like it, perhaps you should do something else". Everyones voice should be valued on a message board. Even if you don't like what I'm saying, as long as I am not breaking any of the terms allowing people to post here, it should be valued. Don't be like other pinball message boards where they shut down any conversation that offends them. Let Pinside be the illustrious, international place for people to speak their minds!!

Atari roots / Cornelius (not his government name!!!!) was banned from replay FX FOR LIFE for making death threats to other attendees. He was banned from the SoCo bar league he played in for making other players uncomfortable. He's been banned from every pinball and arcade forum, including this one.

These are facts. Even he won't dispute this.

He's always got a fresh sob story but it always comes back to his sociopathic and anti-social behavior. This is nothing new.

He's had a million chances to change but he's incapable of it. So what are you gonna do?

Quoted from AtariRoots:

A friendly suggestion was all it was...you know clear your head if your upset.

If you find it condescending arent you exhibiting what you are complaining about?

Or am I missing your point...? Im not disagreeing with you, or trying to shut you up. Im just wondering what you expect to happen?

#156 1 year ago

CL seems very angry and agitated. Why is that, do you think?

it's hilarious that dude caught on camera flipping someone he doesn't know off is now going crazy, listing all these reasons why it's acceptable behavior for a grown ass man in his forties: "well, he isn't liked anywhere else! That's why I did it! It's someone else's fault, really!"

Still trying to understand why you

-gave someone you didn't know the finger
-kept a photo of that person that you didn't know that you gave the finger too

I mean, I must be crazy for thinking that's odd, right? It's obviously my problem.

Being a rebel doesn't mean being an asshole or a psychopath.

And anyway, pinballers aren't rebels.

#160 1 year ago

I spent the day painting my house and thought I do a quick log-in to see how the conversation was goin... WTF??

#161 1 year ago

Beat me to it!

Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

And yet, most pinballers I meet are assholes or psychopaths.

Must just be me though!

People discussing things... on a message board!

Who'd have thunk it?

I guess my issue is with how old Pinside heads always feel the need to lecture the noobs every time they post, whereas you let the millionth drunken ****** post slide by with no comment.

It's weak. Do you want discussion or do you want an echo chamber?

I've met countless awesome people of both genders and several races in pinball. It may be your approach that is getting negative reactions.

It may be, or it might just be some random person on the internet that doesn't know me absolving judgement.

Do you want to be that person, jgentry?

So your saying that your house contains a few more mirrors than the average house?

Welcome to the forum "dude who just got here yesterday".

#170 1 year ago
Quoted from AtariRoots:

Im capable of both, but no thank you, Ill pass on it here.

Appreciate the effort. Good Luck as a New Person to Pinside!

Get some therapy man, you truly need some help. Quit trying to bring people down into your cesspool and deal with your own problems.

#172 1 year ago

oh ho ho, is that... is that what I think it is?

Quoted from starfighter:

Welcome to the forum "dude who just got here yesterday".

Tell me again why you felt the need to get involved in all of this, already?

It doesn't matter whether I just discovered the internet or if I've been here since Pinside was a BBS: all the people being unwelcoming and attempting to shut down conversation are a real plague on a message board.

#173 1 year ago

Yeah, this is the same psychopath that told forceflow to go kill himself on another forum. A real quality guy we want to have around on Pinside.

I don't even know what you're talking about but thanks for the anger + armchair psychology, random person on the internet!

VDOQAK with the valuable contributions yet again.

Bubububu teacher! AtariRoots hurt my FEWWWINGS

dude aren't you a MAGA? come on man, butch up. You cry more than my daughter.

#175 1 year ago

Does anyone else feel left out that they haven't received any angry PM's for downvotes?

Thank you for the verification that you are in fact Cornelius. My comment was made with no quotes or names, but yet it was you, Cornelius, that took it and ran with it. Hook, line, and sinker. You are a pathetic, internet stalker. Go crawl back into your booze bottle and sewer you came out of. You self destructed your way to every kill file on RGP, and now you are back here because you just couldn't resist with your sociopath behavior. You bully, you random internet person, oh how quaint you are.

Like I was with you RGP, I am now done with you here. I just wanted to set the trap to make sure. Thank you for being you, you just couldn't resist.

...throw it in a fit of uncontrolled rage?

#179 1 year ago

$10 now. Crybaby VDOWACK, you gonna contribute anything to Pinside or just keep smashing that report button until your fat fingers catch a cramp?

Quoted from Travish:

So, why are you bullying me, again?

#181 1 year ago

Does that make you feel good, bro? To silence those you don't agree with?

Again, I can't really comprehend how you made a thread crying about "bububub people are messaging me!", while you continue to be a jerkface, conversation-ending charlatan otherwise.

#183 1 year ago

why do people post this sort of thing? for upvotes and popularity?

I guarantee I just donated more than 90% of these clucking "dudes" have contributed - looking forward to contributing more!

F****ing savages.

#184 1 year ago
Quoted from AtariToots:

Yes, that's it exactly.

#185 1 year ago

Done, happy.

#186 1 year ago

He must have only been 1/2 way through his fifth.

#187 1 year ago

Surprised atari didn't make it to the homepin thread before the hammer came down.

#188 1 year ago

Damn did corny win the lottery?

I gotta say donating to buy ban immunity is a novel angle but i don't think it legit works.

I wonder how much Atari Boots is gonna donate.

#189 1 year ago

I'm just happy I got called a charlatan before he got banned.

#191 1 year ago

Holy bat-shit, folks. This is why you should never drink any booze that comes in plastic bottles.

Oh, and for Atari who sent me a PM asking what Alpha Mike Foxtrot means: Adios MoFO!

#192 1 year ago

AtariLoot?

#193 1 year ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Banned?!
Atari Moot.

And it seems like a post scrub.

And one of his follower friends gives me a down vote.

TIME FOR A PM!!!

#194 1 year ago

I'll wager some of my internet points that he comes back as "Atariboots".

#195 1 year ago

Ok guys, show's over.

Let's try to move it along here.

#196 1 year ago

I figured he wouldn't last past me eating dinner

The real Corny just couldn't contain himself

#197 1 year ago
Quoted from ForceFlow:

Ok guys, show's over.

HOW CAN IT BE OVER

Quoted from gtxjoe:

Thumbs up/down is great
Maybe add an user option setting so users can make anonymous up/down votes. upset posters wont be able to PM or hassle them

THIS GUY GAVE ME A THUMBS DOWN!!! (About the offending person)

NEED TO POST!!!!!

#198 1 year ago

I took a pill one time that gave me one of those

#199 1 year ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

There's only one Cornelius!

True, but I'm pretty sure he is "schizo / dissociative identity disorder" enough that we could count him as several different people!
