    Quoted from Bublehead:

    I personally like it when the hobby is injected with a little “good looks”, at least you know when pinupgirl1975 has children, they are going to be some of the best looking pinheads on the planet, and damn it if we don’t need a huge shot of “look good” in this hobby. One look in the mirror is all it takes to know that if we pinheads had to survive on our good looks, we would all be screwed.

    You could just ask her if shes availability instead of taking the long way home. Your game is weak to say the least.

    Good thing, I am happily married to a pinball playing and loving wife who I adore and who adores me. My comment was a backhanded jab at the guys fawning over her, and that they more than likely look just as bad in the mirror as I do. Am I missing something here, or is your humor detector broken?

    Nice spin. But really you think she's a hottie and were trying to flirt with her in The safe world of a pinball forum. No biggie, I get it. Just own it next time.

    My wife plays pinball and reads Pinside. There is no “owning it” required because there is no “it”. You guys need to get a life outside Pinside. It has warped your sense of reality.

    #207 3 months ago

    Where is this thread going??????? Are we gonna start bickering over nothing, especially in a thread that has a giveaway?

    #208 3 months ago

    8years on here and you think it won't. We might have a chance since we made it through Fri. & Sat. night.

    Nicely done! Admit nothing, deny everything and make counter accusations. I almost believe you.......almost.

    Would a moderator be able to move this thread, and all future ones like it, to the classifieds section?

    This thread became or was initially started with the intent of marketing a product based solely on the low female to high male ratio on this forum. Let's just make that assumption based on what's transpired in this thread and the one after this one by the OP.

    We're all aware this thread, and the now subsequent giveaway threads, wouldn't have blown up if a user named "pinupdude75" would have inquired about visibility on the forum. That inquiry would have been followed by a few helpful or sarcastic posts, then left idle.

    Maybe we could all regain some dignity, OP included, and people like myself that have read or posted within this thread, by relegating it to it's proper place.

    wesman I was just simply asking a question, because I was unable to see my original post through the ALL MODs forum... May I ask why this post would have to move to a classified section, it doesn't even have a product posted in it? Secondly... Don't insult me, and assume that just because I am a woman that I am using that to my advantage, because if you knew me you'd know that is definitely not the case. I have a good reputation amongst the people on Pinside and if you look at my history on these forums you would know that. I could have used being a woman to my advantage since the day I joined if I wanted to. Your comments toward me are just so LAME and sexist.

    Sorry... if my presence on these forums threatens you or anyone else in some way. It's not my intention. It's not really my problem if there are people just coming in this thread just because I am a female. If you have a problem with it report it to a moderator and have it taken down!

    And one last thing...guess what? It's a Pinball forum...So, stop being so damn serious, and get a grip man...

    Keep flippin'

    This thread was started because Pinupgirl thought people were unable to see her posts. If you interpreted it as some conspiracy, maybe you should get a better aluminum foil hat.

    I fell in love with my wife Jelane as I watched her play Pinbot at a Putt-Putt Golf in Kettering, OH almost 30 years ago. She locked a ball during multiball, then shot the ramp for a 3 million Solar Value jackpot, beating my measly 2.6 million with a final score of over 4.2 million. That my friend is pure love. I am sorry if you think I need or want any other woman on this planet. Come to Expo in Chicago and look us up this year and I will introduce you to her. She currently holds the MB champion on our MBrLE, the penultimate pinball machine we bought (together) at the last Expo. Maybe you should chat up the OP instead of me, because your game of attacking the other dweebs in this thread seams just as lame an attempt imo.

    Quoted from Buzz:

    8years on here and you think it won't.

    I wish pinside was the same as when I joined 8 yrs ago...….don't get me wrong, it's still the premier forum for pinheads that need help or want to help others. I think it's just gotten to where no matter what someone ask about the trolls have to burn them down for asking. When I joined if you ask about something people lined up to try to help you and make you welcome. Guess it's just the natural evolution of a site once it has grown like pinside.

    #217 3 months ago

    So mods.... Is someone going to close down this complete waste of a thread?

    #218 3 months ago

    Is it any better than a what should I buy next thread. Just let it be. She was nice enough to post a picture to prove she's real. I think she's earned the right to have her thread like it or not.

    #219 3 months ago

    Who is it bothering? Just drain it and let others savor it's A-1 goodness.

    You don't have to feel guilty for being a heterosexual male. Now how far that goes in your own mind is your guilt. If you get past the gender thing you might have a chance to talk with another cool person that's into pinball or at the least get a discount on some pin blades.

    Nope. No Rules have been broken.

    Enjoy the fun everyone!
    And if you are not enjoying the fun, then take advantage of the "drain" tool that Pinside has conveniently provided for any member who wishes to remove a thread from their forum experience.

    And in the future, using the abuse report function is a much more effective way of getting our attention than a callout in a thread we may or may not be reading.

    #238 3 months ago

    Let's see....Op is a pinhead, bought her first pinball machine (check Munsters thread), and trying to engage the community, while throwing a discount for a mod company?...the horror.....

    Kind of refreshing, honestly. A shameless ploy to promote mods? Yea, I've never seen that before (not even convinced it was the initial intent). We put up w that shit all the time, even praise them for it (there are good mod companies/ people out there btw, just applies to a few). Good grief...Op certainly not out of line imho....but some on here? ..

    #239 3 months ago

    Normally I just read Pinside. Very seldom do I post.

    Not only are you not invisible, I posted too!

    Yes, not at all sexist to bait and use a thread for advertising. Your tone and intent is clearly rooted in using your gender, buffed with a photo (Seriously what percentage of men have their photo as their avatar? Clearly you doing so is direct testament as to intent.) with the initiative to garner attention, and then advertise and sell product based on the gender pool dynamics existing within pinball. That's fairly gross, and outright offensive to people that value ethical business, as well as female pinheads that wish to engender respect not on account of their gender, but sans relying on it.

    Apologies if I insulted your grimy business tactics. If your intention was to see if your presence could be noticed in threads, a quick question in an existing thread could have immediately cleared that up. Rather you've "now" chosen the option to open new threads to specifically advertise, after baiting with this one.

    I've said my peace, and defended and elaborated on my stance. I know I won't buy from the company you represent so shamelessly, using your gender for a quick buck. No thank you.

    If you look at the other social forum media fronts (FB, Linkedin, Instagram, etc.) a selfie is normal. I see more and more pinsiders on here doing it.

    Certainly, no reason to bash based on that.....

    Certain Mod makers marketing tactics? That's a different thread topic, which time is almost here......

    Out of this one.....

    I think you're reading into things just a tad here.

    #244 3 months ago

    What's funny is she has been here a long time and for whatever reasons now she is getting some attention in a thread and everyone is freaking out. She represents a company or product, but so do a lot of other people on here. What because she's a woman it's wrong?

    #245 3 months ago

    Yes, you're right and thats from 3 years ago and I had something happen financially where I had to sell it right away, that I don't really have to explain to you or anyone else. It is what it is.

    However, I just got Munsters LE and have a Dialed In coming this week also. Do I have to prove it to you like I had to with my being a girl too?
