All those car mods and nothing to help him fit a pin in it. Such a waste...

Doesn't surprise me at all that a guy who hates John Oliver would turn out to be a jerk.

Hahahhaha, anyone remember when this guy played the victim on here?

I know this is an OLD post, but I just stumbled upon it after reading the latest update about the scammer Joe Wilk, aka Sticky on the website that bears his name https://www.joe-wilk.com/ (updated Aug 28, 2023).

I just wanted to say that I DO remember when this idiot played the victim 5-years ago on Pinside and how he managed to destroy NiftyLED, who prior to this incident, was a respected member of the pinball community. I'm not bringing up ancient history to celebrate karma or this moron getting his comeuppance, but just to serve as a reminder to folks that we rarely get the full story and to be careful when passing judgement on others, labeling someone as a victim and someone else as a villain.

I'm not saying what NiftyLED did back then was right. It was a bad choice, that much is obvious; they knew that and said as much in those miles of posts written way back when. However, when you find out what kind of a person Sticky really was at the time that Nifty was dealing with him, you start to understand their frustration that might drive them to do something stupid. I know how I get when I feel like I am being scammed, played or taken advantage of and in those situations rarely am I at my best.

All this stuff that happened to Joe (Sticky) on the other side of the internet was taking place at the same time as he was here on Pinside playing the victim and making others look bad, scamming many good people on this website to turn against a company and members of this community that were good people, who made a bad decision after being fed up with a terrible person.

Crazy to think that a stupid thread from 5-years ago would still cross my mind from time to time, but after reading about this fool still trying (and failing) to weasel his way out of the consequences of his actions it just reminded me of the whole NiftyLED incident and I guess I just wanted to say that I hope we all think twice before getting out the pitchforks and torches in the future. I know I do.

We like to think in terms of predators and prey. Prey can be predators too...

If you can figure out who owns that website and go down that rabbit hole, interesting stuff...

They have competing websites. I like Eric's better.

What a rabbit hole! I saw I had a handful of posts in the original 'sticky' thread from five years back. Went through and re-read through that after seeing this and the joe-wilk site.

Here's the largest thread that remains from the rennlist site https://rennlist.com/forums/991/1071345-530whp-991-2-boostaddict-stage-1-review-5.html. Sounds like there used to be a lot more content there.
