Quoted from DanQverymuch:
What, the innocent kids don't matter? He didn't bring it on himself? He was a Bernie Madoff, screwing thousands of investors out of their entire retirement funds? I should hope worse things happen than losing toy money? It wasn't a huge risk to give hat boy tens of thousands? They didn't hope to make a killing? One should risk more than they can afford to lose? Pinball is an investment vehicle?
See, none of it can be legitimately disagreed with. Y'all are misusing the thumbs down. It's not for expressing hurt feelings.
You think that's why people gave you thumbs down? Because they can't come up with counter points? Maybe because there are no counter points to your weird point of view about it?
The innocent kids don't matter to the case at hand. This is between Kevin and the people he stole money from.
What do you want me to say? Yes, I want Kevin to have a tough go at it, his wife included. She knowingly took part in the fraud (i.e. titling the house in just her name, per his own admission)
Are their kids going to suffer because of what he did? Yes.
Is that my problem? No.
Is it ideal? Shit no. Ideal would have been Kevin not stealing people's money.
Sorry if that is callous or insensitive, but it's the way I feel about it.
Is that enough legitimate disagreement for you?
My argument should be that the kids will be better off without Kevin around. He is a bad role model.
