Quoted from Pinballdad:
Unreal but I guess some folks live for this stuff and pick out a target as they desire at the time...such a shame.
I see a lot of people agreeing it would be nice to get an update, some partial agreement but taking some issue with your tone/tact, some ambivalence, some antagonism, and whole, whole lot of you hollering about being attacked. Maybe it's not what you're asking, but how it's being written?
Want to see how I do it? Check it out:
"I don't have much money. It sure would be nice to know how far up I've moved on the list from 161 so I can better plan my purchase. I haven't heard anything back from Kevin about this issue. Anyone else in the same boat?"
Someone might respond:
"Who cares? I've got rows of pinball machines and I use $100 bills like you use paper napkins. It's done when it's done and you'll get it when your name comes up."
And I could respond two ways, sort of:
"What the hell is your problem you aggressive rich fascist a-hole!? How dare you? I'm just sitting here minding my own business (computer) and you have to come rub your money shitting high life all up in my face?! Look, I have a right to know, I'm a paying customer (money) and this matters to me. Why the hate? Why bring me down (emotional) when I'm just asking a question!? Do you have some agenda (parenthesis) here or are you just a pure ignorant hate machine (Bon Jovi)!?!?"
Or, I could say:
Nothing, and wait for an answer from someone who mattered.
