Quoted from redman822:
OK, That makes more sense seeing that, I cannot say I have dissected anyone's posts here, I just go by what has been summarized and I went by what SirScott posted.
That being said, who knows what occurred in those four weeks - perhaps Tim reached out to Clay after the first post?
I could say in a post, "Hey I know 'Pinballer X' is 10 miles from me, but I don't know him at all and I have no access to his machines." That would be entirely accurate, but 'Pinballer X' might say, "Hey, George seems like a nice guy, he's local, maybe I'll reach out to him to meet up." That could only take hours to occur...
That's fine, and I'm in agreement with you. The argument of a lot can happen in a year is ridiculous, it was 4 weeks. Again, to each their own, but what person is going to go "document" and photo someone's pin, spend all the time getting part numbers and in depth knowledge just to do What? File it away in his Hollie hobbit notebook?
Without knowing all the facts, from the outside, it seems clear what the motivation would be. Maybe he is a historian and wants to document it, I really have no clue, Seems like a lot of effort though. I'm not trying to come across as attacking anyone, but completely denying he may possibly have a pin seems disingenuous.
Edit: not referring to you, but others who think it's all fiction
