I like the sunglasses on the road show

kokomo.craigslist.org link

Several Pinball Machines for Sale or Trade.

If the Pinball Police would simply get a life and leave my ad alone, I would not have to post it again.
I guess they cannot afford my machines and they are perhaps Socialist People who do not believe in the Free Enterprise System.

My machines are good ones and priced accordingly.
They have no right to tell me what to price my machines at.
It is my legal right to post these and it is not their right to continue to harass me.
This harassment is being documented and monitored and has been reported to the local police department.

They do not have courage to email me directly and they surly will not have the fortitude to sell me a machine at the low prices they say in other postings that I should sell my machines for.
In my prior ads, I have stated offers would be accepted.
Not that I will take some of the low offers received.

I do not have to sell these machines and do not need the cash.
Always a trade is entertained and trade offers are welcomed.

So for the Pinball Police - you are not honorable individuals and do not have the courage to contact me personally.
You hide behind the keyboard and you think you cannot be located.
Far from the truth.

Your records can be court ordered and your harassment is being documented.
If you only leave my ads alone, they will not be posed immediately after you flag them.

NOW for those who are responsible members of this forum.
Email me for more details on my pinball machines.

It's the socialists keepin him down. I like how he doesn't mention his prices in this ad at all...

Do people just do this to get on others nerves???? I mean why flag, or remove, and more importantly, why does CL give people this option if it is such a source of aggrevation????

Local pinball dealers...

If you don't believe me, runs some test ads in the markets plagued by flaggers. You'll see the ads flagged, and a offers from very specific people appear in short order.

Does anyone know if a flagged ad removal is simply based on quantity of flags? I kinda feel for this guy. Seems its a legit ad that gets flagged by the locals. Yet I've flagged an ad for the guy running the SWE1 scam ($1550 delivered), but the ad not only remains, but gets renewed once a week.

He wants $4500 for the RS. And he saw a pristine Rancho on pinball rescue for $3200 so he thinks that is what his is worth. Those ads have been running for months now.

you get flagged if the price is too low just as if it's too high.
'dont you undercut my prices I'll teach you'

No I do believe you. I just couldn't come up with a rational reason why anyone would do this other than to be just a sh***thead. What you say makes perfect sense.

I love all the BS about contacting the authorities and stuff being court ordered and documented. Anybody with basic internet knowledge knows no crime is being done here besides maybe libel if people are writing counter posts about his ads. And if it were, whose jurisdiction would it fall under? Old people, ha.

I thought it was going to be a Police Force for sale.

#11 7 years ago

I won't buy the RS for less than 5k, final offer.

4500 for a roadshow!! man those must be some nice sunglasses Ted is sporting!....Add me to your "documented and monitored" section....I hadn't flagged you...but I will now

I don't know why...but I thought that was very funny.

Too funny. I wonder what the Police thought when he reported that he was being harrassed on Craigslist. I bet there's a whole team of detectives working on it!!

#15 7 years ago

Makes me wonder if the sunglasses are to cover up non-working Ted eyes...

$4500 , wow, I sold mine for $1500 a year ago
