Personally, it doesn't bother me in the least bit if there are (2) topics on a pin. I don't own a Mando yet, but I do have a premium on order and just waiting for it to come in. I just don't understand the argument. Sooo.....since I don't own Mando yet, I can't come to this thread and not to show my ugly mug until I do??? I don't think the originator of this thread is "chest pumping". I kinda look at it like he (or she) already has the pin and wants to give their opinion (good or bad) on the overall first hand experience of ownership.
I check Pinside everyday because I enjoy the hobby. I put "stars" on the threads that involves owners' clubs on pins that I currently own, have owned in the past or may be interested in owning in the future. I love seeing delivery pictures, set ups, mods and pictures of the new babies in the game room nurseries no matter how big or small.
If it bothers a pinhead so much, just drain the other thread and you'll never see it again.
