Quoted from ForceFlow:
You usually seem to want a reaction to things you post [...]
If you actually have a question, ask it in the form of a question.
Well yeah, it's more of starting a discussion. Was it EVER meant to be about their business practices or the legality of what they're doing? Heck no, one complainer is not going to make them stop nor do I care to. It was about the original factory backglasses & the (very anonymous) people who send them in. Again, not targeting anybody specifically. Not some kind of movement or rally either, just a casual "yeah wow that's kind of sad, surprising, yadda yadda" kind of casual discussion you'd have over lunch if you stopped at a place with some pinball buddies.
See: Casual, non-party-bashing discussions with no real purpose besides simple discussion and talk, apparently that's not possible though without calling somebody out like every thread needs a purpose or some kind of evil motive. Just talking. That's what a forum is for after all, and if that's not enough, this forum is indeed called "EM Pinball Hangout", I'm not spamming up the support or tech section or anything. I appreciate what you are trying to do but you are looking into it, and into me, way too deep. Sometimes this place can be so cynical.
People took my intent of making this thread way wrong and I was shocked to see the reactions. Could I have possibly worded it wrong? Sure, and I probably did, and I apologize for that especially to BGResto (if they even would have taken any offense). But in the end the intentions are still obviously the same - discussing about original backglasses. Any mention of legality was solely based to explain why they would have scraped art off in the first place. What they do is their business, especially from a legal standpoint. Even if I did disagree with it (I don't), it is not my place to speak about that nor did I ever intend to. With all due respect I think you should re-read it or at least try to look into what I am saying right now. The constant ramblings, ravings, and anger on this site meant for a fun hobby have turned everybody real quick into jumping to conclusions and making things out of nothing. Disappointing.
