    So instead of viewing the situation as "Wow I got to play all these awesome pinball machines by myself for hours. That was really cool and fun" you're infuriated that other people who thought it would be fun to play pinball eventually showed up a place that has pinball and started playing pinball without for even a second stopping you from playing pinball. Oh, and the place operates on a time-based, unlimited-play system such that if there were no credits on the other machines they could just use their card to add some.

    Quoted from Mbecker:

    Hmmm read thru this "conversation", and hadn't even thought of that -- good point. What's the difference if they used the credits or credited up on their own time card?

    Though to be honest, we have to assume stealing credits our righteous hero had all but scammed from the arcade for himself fair and square is the only way the disgusting, ENTITLED fat people could afford to play after blowing their welfare checks on cake.

    they were actually terrible selfish fat glutenous heathens (allegedly)

    Quoted from dmbjunky:

    Thanks for the entertaining read Mr. C!

    There's a lot to love. My favorite is his moral indignation at what a spoiled, entitled society we've become that people actually believe it's OK to come to an arcade and play pinball machines he isn't playing using credits he wanted to scam from the business.

    Quoted from Cornelius:

    I think my favorite part of this whole thing is the amount of people I don't know and haven't really conversed much (if any) with on Pinside coming out of the woodwork to put words into my mouth. Although I feel like I've played with this Blueberry Johnson
    gentleman before....

    If we do again you're welcome to any credits I leave on machines I'm not playing!

    Hostile? My goodness. Relax, friend. There's only one person WRITING FULL CAPS SENTENCES and endlessly telling people their opinions are wrong (after asking for their opinions), and it isn't me. There are, however, several responding to that one person with a few snarky comments, and I am one of them.

    However, and I mean this genuinely, if such comments really upset you, I'm glad to stop making them. I have no desire to bum anyone out for something as silly as playful ribbing on a pinball message board. We've all got enough stress to deal with in life and I don't want to pile on more for something so trivial.

    Quoted from Cornelius:

    First of all, I thought my original post was simply an amusing little anecdote that was something different than the "where's the code" \ "where's Lebowski" \ "your favorite pinball game sucks" \ "it's only a dollar" conversation that is so prevalent on Pinside. I was not prepared for the hostility that I was subjected to afterwards. You don't think comments like

    Or

    And then there's the really passive aggressive posts that you added to the thread, blueberryjohnson. Maybe you don't see them as being hostile, then perhaps you might take a step back and admit that you've really just added to the dogpile?
    There have been some snarky comments at my expense in this thread that I'm humble enough to admit I had coming, but then there's other folks that just crossed the line into being straight up mean and yeah, it's upsetting. It doesn't matter if it's "only a message board" or "only the internet", it sucks to get gang banged for sharing your opinion. And the ALL CAPS was for emphasis. I don't write entire posts with my caps lock key jammed down. That's as annoying as signing ones posts.

    Thanks for letting me know. Like I said, I have no desire to upset you or anyone else on here, and I'll choose avoiding intentionally doing that over making jokes every time. I hope you have a nice night.
