    Quoted from Syco54645:

    let us all remember pete townshend was picked up for kiddie porn. ended up being dismissed. i hope that the same thing happens here. really like his designs.

    The best part is, that unlike Jackson or Towshend, Trudeau doesn't have millions of dollars to stay out of jail.

    Truer than true:

    #458 2 years ago

    If JK Rowlings hears about this, then you KNOW there is absolutely no chance of a Harry Potter pinball.

    If she thinks that pinball is seedy because it's all Drifters and Homosexuals, wait till she adds Pedophiles to the list....

    #460 2 years ago
    Quoted from Minneapolispin:

    Where's the KISS code?

    Christine 16 has now been shelved for good.

    #461 2 years ago

    Now that I think about it, Goin' Blind is about pedophilia too. I'm starting to see a trend here....

    And I know how it should be
    There is nothing more for you and I
    Some are young and some are free
    But I think I'm goin' blind

    'Cause, I think I'm goin' blind
    And I know how it's to be, yeah

    Little lady, can't you see
    You're so young and so much different than I
    I'm 93, you're sixteen
    Can't you see I'm goin' blind

    'Cause, I think I'm goin' blind
    And I know how it's to be, yeah

    'Cause, I think I'm goin' blind
    And I know how it's to be, yeah

    You're much younger, can't you see
    There is nothing more for you and I
    And I think I'm goin' blind

    Yes, I think I'm goin' blind
    And I know how it's to be, yeah

    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    Markmon argued that watching child porn isn't as bad as molesting them yourself.
    That's his opinion, and it's wrong in my opinion.

    What if, JT was only having sex with a "16 year old" fembot, or a virtual "Christeen 16" ?

    No actual human contact.

    No actual humans exploited.

    You can't send a pedophile to therapy to make them normal (just a lifetime of therapy can't make a homosexual straight ). Your root sexual interests are hardwired by the time you hit your teens.

    There are hundreds of thousands of pedophiles who join help groups on the net. They recognize their ephebophilia interests are wrong, and seek practical ways of coping with it. The one rule of the help groups is that you can NEVER have had any underage human contact - ever.

    So I ask, if JT only had sex with a 16 year old high school cheerleader fembots, would that be OK?

    #503 2 years ago
    Quoted from Medisinyl:

    I don't think anyone should be pointing fingers at owners of JT games and essentially saying they are lesser people for keeping and enjoying them.

    Especially people who love Anime

    If you've ever been to Japan, you know it only exists for one reason....

    #510 2 years ago
    Quoted from flynnibus:

    Hey, we just learned FORD had some employees that were arrested for child porn... everyone sell your FORD cars!!

    Employees??? That's nothing.

    Fords founder, Henry Ford, used to publish a anti-Jew newspaper called The Dearborn Independent, that had a circulation of almost 1 million readers. It was so loved that Hitler used to translate and publish it's articles in German.

    “You can tell Henry Ford that I am a great admirer of his,” Hitler said. “I shall do my best to put his theories into practice in Germany. ....”

    Quick, everyone sell their Mustang games.......

    #512 2 years ago
    Quoted from SuperPinball:

    There is chemical castration for sex offenders and is legal is 8 states. If a pedophile knows he is likely to offend to the point where he joins groups on the net, he can voluntarily take the drugs before he ruins some child's life.

    I can have lifelong fantasies about raping a nun, and crank off to 1000s of available videos on that subject.

    That does not mean that I would ever act upon those urges in real life.

    #522 2 years ago
    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    We had a few law enforcement people comment here....If I may ask, how aggressive is the effort to shut down these sites, period?

    It's hard to shut them down when Pete Towshend keeps funding them (with his personal credit card; he's so stupid) .....

    #530 2 years ago
    Quoted from DCFAN:

    "keeps funding"

    C'mon. Do you have any doubt his attorneys have shown him how to use Bitcoin ?

    #532 2 years ago
    Quoted from rai:

    Blind Faith album cover?

    Exactly....she was 11 years old.


    Don't even get me started on what an asshole, pervert, racist, Clapton is.......google it.

    #541 2 years ago
    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    but here is where we have the line between, porn and art. There really isn't anything pornographic about the album covers


    A naked child swimming in a pool is not porn.

    A 11 year old naked girl, holding a giant chrome dildo - it's probably porn in most of the South.

    #552 2 years ago
    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    My refrigerator could have been built and designed by Jeffery Dahmer. Does that mean I should look at my fridge differently?

    I bought his cookbook (before I knew who the hell he was).

    I admit, sometimes I feel guilty when I make his recipes.

    #556 2 years ago

    JT with the Night Mutilator, listen for clues:

    #566 2 years ago

    Let's all just settle down.

    Let the man have his day in court.

    If he's guilty, then we can all have some regional Pinside bonfires, like when the Beatles said they were bigger than God.

    #578 2 years ago
    Quoted from LTG:

    Not quite accurate. John Lennon said they were more popular in their day than Jesus was in his.
    LTG : )


    #581 2 years ago
    Quoted from LTG:

    Sorry vid1900. I heard a live interview years ago where he apparently changed his tune compared to this.
    LTG : )

    Pete Townsend changed his story in his book, too.

    You know, just rewrite history; after you have time to make up something that sounds nice.....

    #662 2 years ago
    Quoted from moonduckie78:

    I don't believe Pete was "disciplined for it". I believe he was cleared of all charges.
    Just sayin'.

    Not true.

    Pete is a Registered Sex Offender.

    If he was just a regular sod, he would be in jail right now.

    #742 2 years ago

    I could not find any similar comments on RGP.

    Obviously nobody could delete it from usenet.

    #745 2 years ago
    Quoted from 27dnast:

    Why hasn't Stern come out and made a professional and public statement on this matter?

    Gary would be an idiot to draw attention from the media and have pinball look worse than it already does.

    If the news breaks and the media asks Gary for a statement, you know it will be "Under advice from our attorneys, we will reserve comment until the courts have produced a ruling...."

    #754 2 years ago
    Quoted from 27dnast:

    IMO, Stern is much better off showing some common sense and professionalism and grabbing the bull by the horns in this case.

    Stern is just a tiny company.

    They don't have professional PR staff to write intelligent or legally vague statements.

    I'm sure their lawyer told them this morning to keep their pieholes shut.

    You won't hear a peep about it until someone asks at Expo, and Gary responds that his counsel has told him not to comment.

    #757 2 years ago
    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    I would disagree strongly.

    The kind of "media" that might take interest in this isn't your old school newspaper or TV news. i don't see how stern benefits from ignoring this. They are asleep at the switch if you ask me and will make "pinball look worse" by hoping it goes away. That's a gamble and one I doubt they are going to win.

    There is no way that Gary's lawyer said this morning "Issue a press statement to the media, and then make an official statement on the evening WGN9 news"

    That would be insane advice.

    #758 2 years ago
    Quoted from 27dnast:

    Has Steve Richie addressed his comment that he pulled down?

    You can bet that Stern's lawyer said for him to take any comments down, and to keep his mouth shut.

    #762 2 years ago
    Quoted from MikeS:

    These poor kids are going to have to live with this their whole life and all of the damaging effects of being abused by this pervert.

    Did the cops say that he had interaction with any children?????

    Last I read, he had "images" on his computer.

    Be careful you don't carelessly libel yourself....

    #776 2 years ago
    Quoted from 27dnast:

    Well, I don't know about you guys, but that external website comment makes my skin crawl. Its wording... its distance from this past weekend's events... everything about it is flat out creepy.

    Google does not find the phrase "Do people know who Mr. Trudeau really is?" except for today's date, on the German site:


    You'd imagine that if it's been up for 4 years on Performance Pinball, it would be indexed by now.

    The OPs name is "Ghost of pinball past" and does not have a link associated with it, just like the other posts created by Kevin.

    I'd say clickbaiting .


    How long will it take Google to index it on Pinside, now that I've just put the phrase up here?


    #778 2 years ago
    Quoted from JoshODBrown:

    Does google find anything else that's on that website? Maybe indexing is disabled for that domain?

    Yes, Google finds the phrase "Stern Pinball hires Legendary pinball designer John Trudeau" on that same page.

    #784 2 years ago
    Quoted from CNKay:

    Any follow up story or is he in jail awaiting further investigation?

    Paid $750 bail and is out.

    #788 2 years ago
    Quoted from dsmoke1986:

    He's obviously guilty


    No need for a trial then.

    Quoted from dsmoke1986:

    I think Stern would be wise to come out and make a statement

    I'm not sure where you went to law school, but I don't think any attorney would advise that.

    Quoted from dsmoke1986:

    you do wonder if they knew of some of his past transgressions

    "Hey John, you ever download any pictures of young girls? No? Me neither. " - conversation that never happened at Stern.

    #794 2 years ago
    Quoted from dsmoke1986:

    You sticking up for this guy? You're sick and trolling...

    I'm sticking up for human rights.

    Get a clue, real Americans fight for the rights of everyone.

    #797 2 years ago
    Quoted from 27dnast:

    You don't think there are cases where an employee or employees of a professional organization knew of an issue like this and tried to keep it quiet or turn a blind eye?

    Maybe in a Catholic church or something, but has anyone at work EVER asked you if you if you were into Ephebophilia?

    I've been on this earth longer than most of you, and the subject has NEVER come up.

    #799 2 years ago
    Quoted from scooter75:

    I wonder if the Ghost of pinball past is someone (designer?) who worked with JT, knew something about him

    Google Street View does have a picture of GoPP's home, but I can't make out who he is, even when zoomed in.

    #805 2 years ago
    Quoted from thearcadegeek:

    I would have assumed that they expected the call to come and would have a canned response ready.

    That WAS the canned response.

    It's not like Stern is some huge corporation with a floor of lawyers crafting clever press releases.

    #807 2 years ago


    Quoted from 27dnast:Who said anything about a person being formally questioned?

    Certainly not me.

    #810 2 years ago
    Quoted from 27dnast:

    My point is there are certainly circumstances... yes, beyond one of the most well known of recent memory: Penn St... where a pedophile was recognized and nothing was done about it. It happened here in DC with the founder of one of the Nation's most prominent swim coaches. He's in jail now, but it took decades for it to come to that point.

    That's why all sports should be eliminated from our school systems.

    No taxpayer's dollars should be wasted on building stadiums either. If you can afford to pay some nutsack $100,0000,000 to chase a ball around, you can afford to build your own arena.

    #865 2 years ago
    Quoted from Kevin_LHeureux:

    The comment on my website is not clickbait and completely legit time-wise and was in fact something that I saw when it was posted in my news blog in 2013.

    Thank you for verifying that fact.

    Do you still have the IP records on who posted it?

    Quoted from Kevin_LHeureux:

    Vid, we had talked previously and you had even provided some content for my website in the rest tips section if I recall correctly.

    Always at your service.


    #891 2 years ago
    Quoted from vanilla:

    I worked for a large company for many years. Every now and then, you'd come to work in the morning to whispered gossip that some (reasonably well-liked) person in another department was fired the night before but that's all we'd know. We never would be formally told why as it was always deemed a "need to know" basis. There might be some gossip for awhile but no group demands for accountability were made of our employer as there was a labor union and a process and in that process is where the justice would be found.

    Every time a Chinese restaurant goes out of business around my house, without fail a neighbor will tell me, in hushed tones, that the Health Department found cats in the freezer and shut the place down.

    I always tell them that we used to eat cats all the time in Switzerland and nobody ever worried about it. Their delicious.

    #953 2 years ago
    Quoted from PoMC:

    "Just came across this news article that John Trudeau... won the largest pumpkin contest at the state fair."

    That was like 2 years ago.

    #959 2 years ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    Has anybody that's ever received an organ transplant had them remove it because they found out the donor didn't meet his or her moral standards?

    No, but I've removed organs from donors who did not meet my moral standards.

    #979 2 years ago
    Quoted from Pintucky:

    I have a question I have wanted to ask for a long time. Why do "you all" say 'arse' when we say 'ass' over here? And never vice-versa. Are we behind the times or ahead of the times?

    Clearly behind.

    Mozart did "Leck mich im Arsch" back in the 1780s.

    Man, I love that guy:

    #999 2 years ago
    Quoted from jar155:

    When Stern says that John isn't reporting to Stern, I'm assuming that means that he's avoiding communication and hasn't called into work. I understand dodging any and all communication, but despite all he's (allegedly) done, I would hope that he is only just dodging communication and that he's actually ok. If he's guilty, I'd like him to answer for his actions and pay the legal price, but we don't need any of this getting any more terrible.

    #1007 2 years ago
    Quoted from vdojaq:

    I am more offended by this potato!

    I see potatoes showing more skin at the supermarket......

    #1012 2 years ago

    You guys that keep emailing me saying that I'm defending JT, you can stop now.

    I have to presume that JT is innocent.

    We all do.

    #1033 2 years ago
    Quoted from 27dnast:

    Come on, man. Stop. This isn't about you and your shotgun opinions. This kind of stuff is completely inappropriate.

    *comment removed by mods*

    You can hope for for a different outcome, and I will respect your opinion.

    #1035 2 years ago
    Quoted from 27dnast:

    You're a lot better off hoping he can find help for himself, offer words to help guide his victims and hurt ones toward healing, and perhaps affect change that stops people from going down this path in the future. Even if he impacts one person, that's a positive.
    You have to hope for the positive, no matter what the negative situation is.

    That sounds all dreamy and wonderful, but there is no help or successful therapy for pedos.

    If he downloaded some images on his computer, he does not have any victims to help or guide.

    *comment removed by mods*

    #1046 2 years ago
    Quoted from 27dnast:

    I hardly think you're an expert on the treatment of people like this.

    I've got a surefire treatment.

    It works every time.

    #1126 2 years ago
    Quoted from pezpunk:

    no we don't. only the courts (and actual jurors) do. we're free to make up our own minds however we want.

    That is why you will always only be a pez-punk, rather than a real punk who stands for something.

    pez SIJ (resized).jpg

    #1127 2 years ago
    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    Seems several on here run on this program.

    We saw how well that worked out for him.......lol

    #1134 2 years ago
    Quoted from PinballNewb:

    Spoiler alert god damnit.

    Now they call him Big Finger.


    #1198 2 years ago
    Quoted from awarner:

    As for JT, I'd like to hope he isn't guilty but if he is, I'd like him to get help for his problem and not be put away.

    There is no **help** available.

    If it's true that JT is a pedophile, his brain is wired incorrectly at the synaptic level.

    Pedophiles have other brain wire oddities, like being 400x more likely to be left-handed.

    Hormone or antidepressant therapies are not going to re-wire his brain, anymore than it would cure left-handedness.


    You guys also have to remember that:

    A Pedophile is someone with a sexual interest in others under the age of 18.

    A Child Molester is someone who ACTS upon that interest with a child.

    Two very different things.

    #1289 2 years ago
    Quoted from John1210:

    Are these people ever going to get justice for their kids?

    The "kids" could be 17 years old.

    Wait until all the facts are out, before you get all crazy.

    #1296 2 years ago
    Quoted from iceman44:

    Wtf, why does that make it any better? Why do you feel the need to imply that its ok.
    He's an old man.
    I don't give a F how you define it.

    My current boyfriend is 17.

    He lives in OH where the age of consent is 16, so it's perfectly legal, but because of Federal laws, I can't take any pictures of him.

    I always worry that his jealous ex-BF will get a hold of his phone and text some felonious pictures to me.

    #1298 2 years ago
    Quoted from Rascal_H:

    To avoid any potential wrongdoing I only search for milfs and grannies.

    That's the good stuff

    #1323 2 years ago

    We all like Elvis, but he started banging Priscilla at 14 years old and he was an adult man .

    We all like Jimmy Page, but in the 70s, he abducted a 14 year old girl and had sex her
