I thought Reddit was bad, I mean, it definitely has its moments, memes and memories, but what a sensitive bunch of defensive assholes. Why in the world does a niche community like Pinside give that a run for its money?
Every thread, so many are bickering, fronting, non-approachable, unaware, etc. Never seen it in another hobby, other than cars, in my life.
I’ve been in crypto since 2013 and owe all my pins to it, and while we win and lose $X00K any given week, we are always there for each other, always lifting each other up out of kindred spirits in a shared interest.
Really don’t get why pinball doesn’t have this, and now finally get “the Pinside vibe” I’ve seen brought up.
Let’s just… chill, listen, debate kindly… cause even I pull my last straw sometimes when many are getting seriously dumb, and I don’t like that. I don’t like a community that lowers my kindness. Just… we love pinball. I know there’s not a WHOLE LOT to talk about, and that leads to boredom-arguing, but can we just… all have the spirit of camaraderie at the same time, and laugh and enjoy our differences?
Disagree, but actually have a case and be kind about it. And if it’s not objective, shit, really chill the hell out!
Now… who loves playing pinball!!
