    Look, I love innapropriate jokes. But I don't walk around bragging to a bunch of strangers that rape jokes are funny when discussing potential real life child rape. That's crossing a line. Just my opinion. Time and a place my man.

    A little off topic, but why is TX-Sector linked to this thread?

    It's either all fair game or it's not. Humor offends people everyday. Stop being a sno

    Quoted from Msch:

    I'm sorry! What topics are okay for humor?

    All of them are ok but it depends on the time, place, and audience.

    I made a Cosby joke yesterday. We all laughed, but none of us wish for women to be drugged, abused, and raped. It was with a small group of friends though so they either already know I'm horrible and are my friend anyway or knew it was just a joke. Time and place.

    Im sorry to strongly disagree with you, here.

    Ill respect your position, but perhaps its placement here, on such a sensitive subject, simply qualifies as
    "Not Wise"

    Bring it up another time or another place, please, if its important to you.

    I don't think anyone here advocates sex crimes, but it's okay to make a joke. You called for bans. That's what's wrong with this world. Should we call their bosses as well and get them fired?

    #208 26 days ago

    Makes me sick. I've been wanting a judge dredd for like 3 years, but as a father of 3 that game will never grace my doorstep. I won't condemn anyone for having or keeping his games (if found guilty) but I myself will never own any... and that I can promise.

    Quoted from Quiddity:

    I need more information before I tar and feather him... Two counts seems like a really small number if he's really some secret kiddie porn lover. I mean... his HD's could have 17k images and another 15k pornographic videos on them, and out of that huge number there's only TWO things that warrant him being charged over? I know, I know, 'Merica. Just seems ridiculous that someone's life is potentially going to be ruined and it could boil down to him downloading two images that he thought were legal.

    exactly. That was the point of my statement. I think until everyone knows the details (which we probably won't). Nobody knows what the true story is. There are plenty of viruses that can install and download shit. He could have been looking at just normal everyday porn, and one of those pop boxes shows up. has the download button looking like the X in the corner. Now you just downloaded and installed a bunch of porn pics all hidden in your harddrive. 2 accounts seems extremely small. I'm not going to judge until I know more about the situation.

    It's kind of like the sex offender register. Everyone is lumped into one big pot and labeled as such. But there is a big difference between the 30 year old after 10 year olds, and a 18 year old with a 16 year old girlfriend. Unfortunately they are put into the same category, until you know the situation, it's not good to start throwing stones.

    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    I'm sorry, Occam's Razor and all that. Not a topic I want to dwell on but virus/trojan/etc activity generally has a goal more profit driven than, "Let's see if we can hide pictures of 15-y/o cheerleaders on John's PC." If his computer was hosting something he wasn't aware of, I would think most of these investigators know how to differentiate between that and a spank bank and certainly wouldn't risk the potential liability for thrashing some old dude just to pad their stats.

    I don't want to know the details and I'll trust the so-called justice system to sort them out, but I really don't think he's getting framed out of context.

    Let's be real clear on this: NO IMAGES OF CHILD PORN ARE ACCEPTABLE. Zero. Anything greater than the number 0 makes you a scumbag. It is up to the courts to determine if John did something wrong and he is entitled to due process.

    I disagree. When I was working for the webfilter company. Some viruses would instantly download all kinds of illegal shit all over the computer, and then try to hit you up with an FBI lockout and a number to call and pay a "fine" to unlock it. Seen it at least 50 times. and these programs threw major child porn all over the computer. I worked for that company for 4 years. I've seen pretty much all the dark shit the internet has to offer. Some real nasty shit out there.

    Yes, I've seen computers infected by those scams at least as many times as you have. I never ONCE called the cops because I knew what they were. That's my point.

    edit: and neither did you, right?

    well it was at work. It was my job to stumble upon those sites. we didn't call the cops from the 100's of child porn or beastality sites we seen either. Just put them on the block list for all customers and move on. we had 100k's worth of site to sift through. No time to dilly dally.

    and just for the record. I'm not defending john as I don't know his situation. I'm just stating for you guys, that cases like this are not always black and white.

    #217 26 days ago
    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    That's a real cheap shot dude. How am I supposed to know Who you are married to? I don't know a single thing about you except that you think you are as a good at pinball as Colin.
    Anyway, please let me know when it's ok to "tar and feather the guy". Ill wait patiently.

    You would've said something differently had you known? I doubt that, and honestly I'd rather think that you posted a genuine thought rather than some manicured thing anyways. I've mentioned that she's my wife many times and AFAIK there are no other women from Dallas TX that post here. The one other one I know of of that used to hasn't made a post here in quite possibly years. There might be a third depending on who really runs the TPF user account LMAO

    I might think you're a dick a lot of the time, as no doubt you do of me, but I don't think you're an idiot and I do think this kind she phrased what she said so poorly that the intent wasn't clear, so.... That's all I'm saying. Points rolling in from people that know more about how these cases work is going to keep on rolling in, and it doesn't look good. Even I have to admit in light of that, its looking bad. Epically disappointed in the damage these people keep causing to the pinball community. Skit b, jpop, Dutch, now this too..... It's f'ed up and sad.

    You started with 50 in 4 years and then moved the goalposts to "too busy". I do call the cops more than once a month, but not about botnets. Professionals know what they're seeing.

    Can understand how you feel at this moment but let's not get things out of proportion. I'm a father of 2 and Trudeau might be a sick old man but pins are still machines and objects who have done nothing wrong. Should a team of hard working people who somehow got associated on a project with him be punish ? Dwight has not done any harm to anybody why would I not want to have Ghostbuster one day ? A lot of great artist where insane crazy sick freaks......doesnt make their music, art or creation less for that.

    #220 26 days ago

    This same type of situation happened when I was in the Army with a guy in my unit. He was arrested in a sting and they found child porn on his computer. He was found not guilty in a court martial as I guess it was shown that there was evidence that these images were remotely stored on his computer without his knowledge. Everyone thought it seemed shady at first but I guess that it can happen.

    #222 26 days ago

    Sad. I was a fan.

    Was he really working on maiden? And will it still be released?

    #223 26 days ago

    Like others here, I'm sickened and saddened by this.

    I was reminded of the Ghostbusters preproduction images leaks last year. I wonder if the leak was from an investigation; or more likely the leak was from a file sharing program. The default behavior of some file sharing programs is to share with everyone anything that's an image on your computer.

    Quoted from emkay:

    You started with 50 in 4 years and then moved the goalposts to "too busy". I do call the cops more than once a month, but not about botnets. Professionals know what they're seeing.

    i've run into that virus around 50 times in 4 years. Why would we call the cops. It's not our job to police the internet. It was our job to categorize the internet so our filters would filter out the stuff our customers wanted. We did the filtering for milwaukee public schools and many other organizations. so it was our job to seek out and block the child porn before others try to find it. Child porn was blocked for every customer. no exceptions. but we had to categorize others as well. Like proxies, virus locking sites, video (like youtube), forums and shit like that. There was like 12 categories a customer could request to have blocked. So the entire internet had to be looked at, and filed under something.

    Most of the big child porn server type systems are overseas anyways. Calling the cops would be pointless.

    #226 26 days ago

    Would caution restraint until facts come out.

    I had a childhood friend who after college had a roommate that was into that stuff but they shared a computer / he didn't know the shit his roommate was downloading. At any rate, my friends life was ruined.. between jail, then being on those sex offender web sites, people keying his cars, not finding places to live, not finding a job, etc.

    Given that was the 2002 compared to now with viruses/bots and all that.. it is even easier to imagine someone getting caught up on the wrong side of over zealous cops and/or jurys who don't understand technology... And this crime being so horrible that people easily pre judge guilt.

    So, yeah.. sucks.. hopefully justice will prevail in this case regardless.

    #227 26 days ago

    Well I know in American it's Innocent Until Proven Guilty but they way everyone is reacting it's more like Guilty, Til Proven Innocent!

    This is just sad all around. Even if he's acquitted he will never recover from this black mark on his life!

    I hope he gets the help he needs and moves on in life.

    He certainly gave us some great playing pinball machines.

    Disgusting without question! Just a very sick person who needs help to get his life back on the right track!

    #228 26 days ago

    I am a father of a 3 yr old daughter. I am upset that anyone would ever exploit or harm the innocence of a child or children. He could be guilty or innocent. I own about 5 games he designed. I do not advocate his actions at all.
    I bought those 5 games and did not buy in or support his alleged sick perverted behavior. He was conpensated for his designs and for me that is where it ends. I will not sell those games or worry about values going down. It's not supporting him by owning those games. If that were the case; I'd selling all my Sterns and Williams games because that are linked to Trudeau.
    It's not about values or a connection to someone disgusting. It's about punishment if applicable, by the law and God.

    Wow, do u realize just by attempting to obtain images of child porn you are giving others motivation to create it, I'm a well known jack ass but I would not own GB's now and let my nephews play it, it would feel strange, but I'm not judging anyone else, its a weird situation. Lets hope its all a misunderstanding and John is innocent but it doesn't look good, I think the mods should really close this thread and not allow any others until the man has been found guilty of a crime.

    Quoted from PinballHelp:

    I too saw his Facebook posts. I had to un-follow him to avoid seeing some of the really inappropriate things he would post.
    I hope he becomes a better person through all this. And any harm done to others is minimized.

    WTF? I don't EVEN want to know what all that might have been, considering THIS.

    When Police lock a person up at their residence for child porn, and already have a warrant to seize personal property and electronic devices from a judge. You can be dam sure they already had a subpoena for your ISP in which already complied and handed over your IP along with the logs of that IP(s) in addition the site itself could have been a bait and login site setup by the authorities. They are already laying out all the digital trails showing the dotting of the I's and the crossing of the T's and leaving nothing un-turned.

    Sad day for pinball and this community.

    What about the games he helped with but didn't get credit for? I've heard him at shows say he helped out on this game or that game, and I've heard other designers say the same thing about stepping in on a project. Do you need a list of those games, too, so you don't accidentally play them?

    Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
    I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
    The evil that men do lives after them;
    The good is oft interred with their bones;
    So let it be with Caesar. People should separate the game from the designer in this sad situation.

    Quoted from xbloodgreenx:

    What exactly is your point here? You don't care that you own a machine designed by a scumbag? Cool...

    again, this is people assuming shit, without knowing jack shit about anything. The only people that would know anything about this, is the investigators, John and some close personal people he confides in. That's it. Anyone else should not be making judgement positive or negative until more info is revealed. This is how lynch mobs start.
