Quoted from nephasth:

I'm pretty sure pinchilli is kaneda...

No. No, I'm not "Kaneda" and I do not even know who that is. I made a comment that I really thought PBN should have had an update article by now but apparently everyone here disagrees. I get it. I already apologized once. I don't understand why anyone thinks someone would create a new account for making what I thought was an innocent post. I can't believe the backlash this has created.

Quoted from benheck:

I would bet a steak dinner he hasn't even hired a lawyer yet.
Remember this is the same rocket scientist who (apparently) thought Fair Use and Non-Profit would allow him to make a Predator game.
"We have the legal right to make these games"

Right now he is probably just dealing with Fox. If he agrees to destroy all the Predator stuff, I can't see them suing him.

#6603 4 years ago
Quoted from Pdxmonkey:

I wonder who you are?
You speak of th greatest scandal in pinball history yet your account is less than a month old.

OK...damnit.... I admit it- I'm pinchill !!!!!!

Everyone else has me on ignore so I felt I needed an alter-ego to bicker with.... "Smart Cop/Dumb Cop" if you will....

-SmartCop.

PS, maybe pinchill is Kevin? ANY conversation that distracts the mob from Kevin and REFUNDS is good for him...

People are sensitive when someone becomes so outspoken on a controversial topic being so new to forum. Especially with the vail of secrecy surrounding AG - it raises an eyebrow to many.

I think your questioning PBN is fair. However, everyone really wants to focus on refunds right now and Kevin/his lawyers subsequent action.

Yeah I brought that up last week, crazy stuff.

Yeah, I hear ya, but I'm just confused how my first post today could be construed as "so outspoken on a controversial topic"? Pretty much every post since then has been me defending the personal attacks. Even after I apologized.

#6609 4 years ago

Here is a crazy theory, what if the AG doesn't really have any evidence of a lack of license and that is why they stayed anonymous? Maybe their intent was to destroy Skit-B? They don't seem to be speaking up or helping with facts and evidence to those of that are looking for refunds so it would seem they had other motives and didn't care about the community at all.

As I said just a theory but it is hard to believe a group of people that won't come forward and had already got their resolution.

Quoted from tracelifter:

Many of us tried to warn people of the pitfalls associated with the preorder model and were flamed and derided on the threads for doing so while the "shut up and take my money" crowd were supported and given multiple thumbs up.
They didn't build Vegas with the money they gave to the few winners, they built it with the funds the majority of people lost when they gambled.
I will just leave it at that, to say anything more would just get me another thread eject.

I'm with you and agree 100%. I too am treading lightly so I do not get "ejected" or "banned" . There have been many before us that proved "open communication" does not exist in a Predator thread. Sure Pinside in general seems to be ok but the Predator thread??? Nope. I know of 2 people banned and they did not cuss or insult anyone. They were on the wrong side of the road railroad tracks when it came to voicing an opinion about Kevin and/or Skit B. Sad situation really. It really did not need to be that way. Yahoo forums are more civil than any Predator thread I have read. Also....I better stop or I have heard what happens next

Peace.

#6611 4 years ago
Quoted from PinChili:

Yeah, I hear ya, but I'm just confused how my first post today could be construed as "so outspoken on a controversial topic"?

Let me clarify "so outspoken..". It's a combination of all your posts in this thread, not a specific one that have people reacting now.

Don't sweat it. You apologized. You'll always have a few thumbs downers no matter what you post in this topic. If you post against Kevin your safe. If you even question PBN or AG you'll get some type of thumbs down. Just keeps tabs on the sources of the thumbs downers. The big thing now though - everyone wants to focus on refunds so everyone can get their money back. Rightfully so, makes some edgy when complaints on others show up in here.

I didn't say innocent, and its just a theory. I still haven't seen any hard evidence proving anything the anonymous group has said. Why stay anonymous at this point? My own feeling is they don't give two shits about the community. If you're gonna blow the whistle on a company I need to know the people we are talking about here and their character, for all we know its a group of cons.

This statement is in no way approving of Kevin and his terrible business ethics, that is a separate matter and I don't want to compare the two.

The thing is if we sue Kevin we are gonna need some hard evidence and it would help to get that from the people that brought this to light and last I checked they are as silent as Kevin.

Quoted from nintendo:

Who is "kaneda"? I mean I know he's a pinsider, but what's the story with the guy? His name pop's up quite often without any reason. Back story anyone?

He was voted 2014's Most Punchable Pinsider.

#6616 4 years ago
Quoted from Coyote:

I don't know him, but I recognize the name. I think he's the guy with a love-affair with Fix It Felix. But my memory's foggy, I could be wrong.

I think it was actually "Fellate Me Felix"....

I kid.... I've actually met Kaneda. True story.

Treading so lightly that you've been a member of Pinside for all of a week and this is only your third post.... I suppose you'll tell us that you spend that whole week catching up on the Predator threads?

#6618 4 years ago

Just an update for those of you who are in the process of doing a charge back.

Paypal changed my account to "limited" status.

I now have to jump through some hoops to get back to my normal "verified" status.

It's nothing major. Just validation my credit card info, my personal info, etc.

I should have my Paypal account back to normal in a couple of days.

Typical example of someone wanting drama. No drama there? Then someone tries to create it. That is one of the things wrong around here IMO. I will not even waste my time responding to length of membership here. You have no right even questioning it. I have done nothing wrong, insulted nobody...yet people like you will try to, "Dig Deep" and jerk a reaction from people in order to fulfill your drama needs.

Look elsewhere please.

#6621 4 years ago

This thread is beginning to remind me of the rgp days....and not in a good way.

#6622 4 years ago
Quoted from nintendo:

Who is "kaneda"?

The only pinsider I have on ignore..... He won the gold.

PinChili has already apologized so lets just let his comments on Martin rest and move on. Shall we? Agree it's kinda feeling like old RGP in here.

Meh. Just enjoy your 15 minutes.

Its just internet jibber jabber.

#6624 4 years ago

So, I paid via PayPal funded by my debit card thru my local bank.
I'm taking all my paperwork of the transfers $250, $2250, $2250 to them tomorrow afternoon and see if there's any recourse. I doubt it, but I'll let you guys know what comes of it.
Really wish it was just 2 transactions instead of 3.

I have opened cases on the 3 transactions at PayPal but not expecting anything to come of it.
Man this sucks.

Martin from PBN put his rep on the line, so I'm sure he fact checked the AG claims. This is way to serious to just be disgruntled PRED buyers, or the Anti SkitB campaigners.

I was a hold out and tried to wait and see as long as I could, but between the PBN article and the lack of any responses via Kevin emails, I gave up.

Kevin picked a bad time to stay silent now. I just want folks to get closure on this.

Ah, ok- point taken. And I agree 100%.

I mentioned the same in the other thread when folks asked why AG hasn't provided their evidence. I don't beleive, beyond their phone conversation, there is any.

Now I personally beleive Ag's version of the story, but that's not the same as being able to prove it.

How do you PROVE someone (Kevin) DOESNT have something (license)? Well, short of a full confession from Kevin, FOX is the only source for that "proof." And- If they even PLAN litigation- I'm not sure they'd be inclined to make any public statement.

So, those waiting for the full story might be waiting a good long time....

#6627 4 years ago

I agree.

Other then waiting for the story to change, all anyone can do is be supportive and empathetic,
to those invested.

Regarding those that are new, not invested, or comparing to RPG, etc....
Its more the sensitivity of those that are invested, have read every page of this and every thread, rode the emotional roller coaster...its painful, frustrating, and possibly a large financial loss.
Understanding that they need their feelings respected, supersedes, IMO, new thoughts on what has happened, and what should happen. They are likely tired and still hurt....at least many of them.
Understanding what they have been through, hopefully those not understanding ejects, or defensive
posturing etc, comes from the frustration of those involved and those who may have been part of it.
New conjecture, new finger pointing, rehashing ,any concepts only opens wounds that are raw.

I hope this makes sense, as it seems, new, otherwise innocent comments, get a tougher time on this thread.

People now want solutions, support, genuine news.....I think, IMO, as a whole, burnt on new, or non productive conjecture.

The correct answer to much of the rehashing is simply to repeat, "Ask Kevin"...nothing more.
In the absence of his responses, new input often wants to blame the messenger, and pages have already been through this, so its frustrating to read a new post, that is unaware of all that has transpired, hence the ganging up on, or dismissal of what normally have been a reasonable question.

A new poster, may not understand this, which is fine...but maybe, whats left of this thread will continue to report what people are able to accomplish in refunds, pro and con to help others,
any legal news, any supported New developments,

Dont take it personally...its simply a sensitive issue, not needing new, rehashing.

All the media companies WANT public attention when they go after people for IP stealing.

It will cost them more to sue Kevin than they can possibly recover, but they need make an example for all the other geeks.

Same thing for MP3s, porno movies, pirated copies of AutoCAD.....

Porn movies too? Uh oh...

Now is that FULL movies or just choice scenes downloaded?

A friend wanted me to ask, btw...

#6634 4 years ago

Ill hug Rob Lowe! Thanks lordunder....sorry, underlord...perhaps it comes from generations in Pittsfield, Concord, and Lebanon...!

New Hampshire Humor....so few pinsiders from NH!

Now, the Porn industry..........................................

#6635 4 years ago

"To those of you who have requested a refund and have yet to hear back, please message me right away so we can get everything taken care of. Thank you all again for your continued support,
-Kevin"

That was 13 days ago - assuming no refunds?

#6636 4 years ago

Filed 2 claims with Paypal for my $250 and $2750...no dice, but I didn't call anyone. Called Chase today, they tried to contact Paypal, but nobody answered the phone. They're going to keep looking into it for me and have mailed me some paperwork. At least they didn't flat out turn me down.

#6644 4 years ago

Very strange that a grown man can turn his back on all the faithful who stuck through till the end and now have to deal with trying to get our money back, 10 days ago it was a few short days and then silence, Kevin is real douche and I hope even with full refunds he goes to jail or worse. I apologize for sounding harsh but this is very disheartening, DOUCHE.

Quoted from Pdxmonkey:

You speak of th greatest scandal in pinball history yet your account is less than a month old.

Quoted from PinChili:

I wonder who YOU are. Wait, no I don't. I could care less. I won't comment again until my account is 6 months old minimum because apparently that is relevant somehow (and apparently the first day someone gets into pinball they were supposed to create an account here?) Real friendly community here.

Quoted from nintendo:

Who is "kaneda"? I mean I know he's a pinsider, but what's the story with the guy? His name pop's up quite often without any reason. Back story anyone?

"Its me, Austin! Its me, Austin! It was me all along, Austin!"

Quoted from jayhawkai:

That's a lot of righteous indignation for someone who's only been here a week.

Reading for a length of time and joining are two different things. Seriously, I have no idea why two people here have already made issue of this. You both must want drama where there is none to be found. Is there a probation period here at Pinside that I am not aware of? Are you supposed to join and wait 6 months before posting? If you post earlier it gives others the right to make an issue of your opinion over and over because your membership is new?

Both of you, please seek your drama elsewhere!
