    Quoted from protocol_j:

    I really, really hope that’s true. But without proof, it’s purely speculative. And as we are all innocent until proven guilty, it is irresponsible to present speculation as fact.
    Especially when there are those who would use said speculation to do real harm, as SDTM supporters have done ad nauseam over the last week.

    What proof are you looking for? I’m dead serious about this.
    What proof do you have that Jack Danger is telling the truth?

    Quoted from Hollywoodbone:

    What proof do you have that Jack Danger is telling the truth?

    You are missing the point. Do you not realize that some of your viewers and associates are doxxing a man and attacking his livelihood because you had to recut a video? Really?

    I’m not looking for proof. I honestly don’t care what happened to start it. It’s over, it’s done. What I do care about is the disproportionate response of an internet lynchmob that was launched based on hearsay.

    I have witnessed firsthand the abhorrent behavior on twitch of a few pinsiders and TPN listeners. I guess you haven’t, and honestly that’s probably for the best. But you can’t just sit here and pretend this is all someone else’s fault when all of this could have been easily avoided by not fanning the flames.

    PS: my previous posts were attempting to explain why people might have been banned. Some folks seemed incredulous, so I wanted to point out that there were many instances of violating Twitch rules. And generally, the laws of human decency.

    Come one J, it's time to drop it and move on buddy. We want to focus on wacky pinball puppet theater now.

    #1415 5 months ago

    Speaking of wacky pinball puppet theater...holy cow the first episode of Puppet Palz was a lot of fun! I had now idea how underrepresented the puppet demographic was in the pinball hobby. My eyes have been opened! And what a timely topic, let's follow Moppy and Steve's advice and try to all get along.

    And oh man, my wife thinks I'm goofy enough for how much I like pinball, should have seen her face when I played her some clips from the Puppet Palz!

    Look, I love puppet theater as much as the next guy, but you can’t tell me to be quiet while a man is continuing to be doxxed over something stupid. None of us should.

    Man I can tell you 100% you don’t have a clue what your talking about. Now you can take my word and drop it or you can continue. That’s up to you but I can clearly see you haven’t followed any thing that has happened this year up to this point.

    Listen unless AP paid SDTM and gave them a game so they can produce a marketing video for AP then AP should have ZERO say in what they do with their content....not sure why thats hard to understand? These guys don't spend hours upon hours producing content for nothing. Clearly they do it to promote games so they can increase sales....they own it...end of story

    Quoted from protocol_j:

    Look, I love puppet theater as much as the next guy, but you can’t tell me to be quiet while a man is continuing to be doxxed over something stupid. None of us should.

    Look, I suggested that you move on because I don't understand what the point of continuing to talk about it is, or what sort of resolution you are seeking. I've never heard Zach or Greg ever suggest that Jack Danger or anyone else should be harassed, ever. That's not really their thing. And since the whole HW launch went down, I never heard or saw either of them ever even mention Jack by name. They've actually been trying to keep things pretty diplomatic, and on the last TPS episode, Zach even still suggested that people go watch the DF premiere stream if they wanted to see more Hot Wheels action.

    So if people are harassing JD, then A-that's a shame and not cool, and B-not remotely Zach or Greg's fault. They've both tried to move on from this business, and I suggest that we all respect that. What more needs to be said about it?

    --
    I for one can't wait for Puppet Palz Episode 2, and I'd love a behind-the-scenes documentary about this whole project!

    Quoted from gumnut01:

    Can someone explain to me why we have not had a Ramones pin. Seems such a win to me.

    Here I am trying to follow this thread that is dwelling on the Jack and Zach drama and then this Ramones pin suggestion pops up and I immediately think of their song Pinhead that has the lyrics "I don't want to be a pinhead no more" and "D-U-M-B Everyone's accusing me." Coincidence? I think not.

    You are using the term doxxing incorrectly I believe. And I assure you, to save face, let’s not continue with this. It was over yesterday before Jack came in here with more false info. After speaking with AP the past couple of days in passing, they want to move past this all and we were agreeable to that. Play some Hot Wheels, it’s a good and fun game regardless of the rollout hiccups.

    I thought there were 50 posts about puppets, not SDTM stuff (which isn't a part of TPN anyway). Imagine my disappointment when I finally come in here and read everything.

    #1432 5 months ago
    Quoted from DeadFlip:

    Despite what some may say or believe, and despite my having made a comment about it, I was not involved in it, I was not some evil mastermind, I was focused on preparing for and doing a kick ass stream for the launch of Hot Wheels.

    This is false.

    Quoted from DeadFlip:

    when I really was not involved.

    This is false.

    And as I stated on The Pinball Show Podcast, Jack’s stream prior to the reveal he stated we jumped the gun and release early and likely would reupload once the stream was finished.

    That was false.

    He also indicated on that stream that he did not contact AP about the videos and that he was contacted with an apology from AP and that he was not involved.

    That was false unless other involved parties were lying to us.

    Jack’s pokes and aggressions we have become accustomed to, albeit always stressful. We never aim to be the aggressor and we are having too much fun as friends in pinball to spend time on creating conflict.

    However, when incorrect things are said publicly about us from “the face of pinball” and a “global pinball ambassador”, then we have no choice but to point out the truth in an effort to defend our brand and our integrity as people.

    That’s all, nothing more. Believe us when we say, we will continue dealing with it. You will continue to not see us provoking anything. If anyone would like to add to this dialogue, you can contact us privately or continue discussion in the SDTM thread. We attempted to move forward without rehashing stuff and tried to keep this embarrassing information between us and AP, that was agreed upon. But if AP approved Jack’s message then may be that was false as well. Oh well, PLAY MORE PINBALL and enjoy the fantastic content from the group of providers at TPN as well as all other pinball media. No one wants shitty drama in pinball. This is all of our escape we can agree on that.

    #1435 5 months ago

    I wonder if Macho will make an appearance on the PuppetPalz Show? I bet that could happen very easily

    #1436 5 months ago

    I wonder what Moppy looks like? Anything like one of these? Although the last one is a bit scary. Then again, just because his name is Moppy, doesn't actually mean he has to have mop-like features. Hmm...is it wrong that I'm wondering these kinds of things after listening to Puppet Palz? Are these questions that a 34-year-old man should be asking?

    #1438 5 months ago
    Quoted from Thunderbird:

    JJP wisely does not use JD, as his dialogue while streaming is anything but family friendly. Not sure why Stern allows JD to use such foul family unfriendly language during his streams. JD should keep things professional in his banter, if he wants to be a highly regarded streamer by families too.

    Fuck all this noise. They are just words, not even words that hurt. Unfuckingreal.

    My mind did the same thing. For me, that’s the genius of it being audio form. We get to imagine. That means for the thousands of listens, each Steve and Moppy and Zaccario are different

    #1440 5 months ago

    Well done PuppetPalz! Fun show and you did a lot of work for us and we appreciate your talent Steve, Moppy and Zaccario! My family loved it!

    #1441 5 months ago

    I’m definitely going to have to listen to it again today. I feel like it’s one of those things you have to pay close attention to or you’ll miss a lot of the little jokes and Moppy comments

    #1442 5 months ago

    this shit is one of the weirdest most "create the drama for clicks" things I have seen in pinball.

    Seems like Zack is taking his tips from Kaneda on how to become the Star.
    Seems like Jack and Zack have this whole WWE type false rivalry going.
    All very TZ type shit.

    Up next "BatBoy is real, and he plays pinball, but not the ones you expect"

    #1443 5 months ago

    There is only one way this is going to be resolved, and I can’t wait to see it.

    Zach, I needed to let you know Jack Danger has many names and titles in Pinball, such as CEO, Global Pinball Ambassador, Twitch Ambassador, Stern Stan, and many others, but the "Face of Pinball" is not one of them. Rudysoup IS the Face of Pinball. Have a Great Day and God Bless!

    Loving the show tunes. Puppet Palz is the mop of pinball. Maybe TPN can sign Puppet Palz to a million dollar / ten-year contract, after they hire Alvin Jones of course. It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood
