    Quoted from Rockytop:

    I don't take myself too seriously and enjoy the blessings in my life.
    It's hard for me to understand those that seem to be perpetually offended by everything. It seems like there is a lot of bitterness and anger there.

    I'm offended by your happiness.

    Quoted from Ballsofsteel:shit, i see more chicks getting chicks than i do these days.

    I suppose it depends what websites you're looking at

    real life. is there such a thing anymore since it seems everyone lives mostly in the cyber world? i don't socialize on my notebook or my smartphone, as both are a complete waste of my real life real world time.

    I prefer pinball guys who get guys. Much cuter. Why haven't there been any gay pinball machines?

    I think the ability to fix things in general with pinball machines as added bonus is an attractant.

    #262 2 years ago

    There is a constant stream of tolerance and love in her facebook thread.
    If you want another thread of the best of how "pinside is worst than everything on the planet" start it up and I will grab the screens.

    I watched the mini-doc on Pins and Needles, Molly's pinball joint. She seemed like a genuine, fun person. I was sad when she left pinside.

    New Pinside band: BlondeTall and the Shitbags. Really??? Sad to see people who are a big part of the pinball community bashing other people who are a big part of the pinball community. There is soooooo much more to Pinside than a few questionable threads. It is what you want it to be. If you want tech help, find a tech help thread. If you want to be in a discussion about the next rumored machine, find that thread. If you want to avoid any thread that could possibly offend someone, than avoid those threads. What I hate more than anything else is people bashing people. Wow. Angry people make me unhappy. Play some pinball and stop insulting each other.

    This is the answer, this is why I love pinside.
    Unhappy people choose to be unhappy. Offended people look for stuff to be offended about...

    Gay '90's was released by Williams over forty years ago. Decades before the "Gay '90's " became reality.

    True. The hetero men are marginalized at conventions because there aren't enough girls around. They tailor the conventions for the homosexuals and women.

    It's sad..... I really enjoyed Molly when she participated on Pinside. I was bummed when she quit posting. It just seems a bit ironic that the reason she stopped posting is because she found a couple of people to be rude, yet she refers to the mods (sans Blondetall) as "shitbags" which is...well....being pretty rude.

    I feel the mods do a terrific job. They're volunteers that put up with a lot of unnecessary drama, not to mention banned Pinsiders that seem to open a new account on a daily basis.

    ...and I sincerely doubt Molly's version of Robin's response.

    Quoted from dmbjunky:

    I'm offended that someone would be offended that ten years ago I would have been offended by that picture and I'm further offended at their being offended at my finding that picture cliche and funny today. Who do I get to sue? Can I at least flog them publicly? I demand retribution for my offensiveness!

    I just listened to a podcast from he-who-shall-not-be-named (I know I shouldn't have) and he mentioned how he has a ton of duplicate accounts and is posting every day. That's a mature response to being banned from a site.

    » YouTube video

    She may be. But I go with what I know on things like attacking people here back on FB when she doesn't (or possibly) know them personally or saying this place is a garbage dump for pinball fans and collectors when quite honestly, has been nothing but helpful and friendly here as well. That all being said, nice video that was put together.

    Multiple questions, and good morning everyone

    1: People posted nudes with their pinball machines? Link pls.

    2. All jokes aside, do you guys feel that pinside is LGBT friendly? I admire both men & women myself, no shame saying so.

    3. As for the P-C arguments, I believe it just needs a healthy balance. You can respect freedom of speech without going out of your way to cause harm on purpose. Like, I'm pretty sure that nobody here would post stuff that's racist (I think).

    I've been here for a long time, but for the most part I haven't been active due to real life stuff.

    4. ...People posted nudes with their pinball machines? Link pls.

    Some people have their own vision of how the world should be, instead of trying to live in the one that exists. And they tend to get frustrated when that world won't change for them.

    I don't always comment about them, but when I do I make it clear I wouldn't want to be one of them.

    no. generally the attitude is "you feel uncomfortable? that's your problem" whenever anyone has complained about, i don't know, an entire page filled with images making fun of the idea of being gay, just to pick a completely random example.

    So far, from the little I know about you you come across as both funny and level headed.

    Still, I do believe there is always room for improvement in this world in certain areas.

    let's start small. Stern, please stop making every pinball machine based on TV shows that I don't watch.

    Well, that's slightly disappointing to hear. Oh well. And I know you probably dislike me already, but for the record I do have a PEZ tattoo.

    What Pez character and flavor though? Princess Leia has flipper tattoos as well!

    LOL. Good call. Molly's version of her conversation with Robin has no relation to reality. She is just making up a story for whatever reason.

    Yep....I refuse to listen because 1) I have no interest of what that narcissistic sociopath has to say and 2) I don't want to give him the "numbers" for his (mostly) non pinball related podcast.

    Wish there was a great multi question bias free poll to determine if Pinheads experience higher divorce rates compared to video guys..

    It would be interesting to just see the demographics of the hobby in general..

    Maybe ask the same set of Survey questions to another similar hobby group and compare all the answers to the general public.

    No character, just a foreign logo from a candy pack. I used to be a big pezhead, but after the company started milking the collectors I lost most interest. It's a shame, I had a collection of epic proportions but eventually sold all of it off. I still love them, but it's easy to get too obsessed with a single hobby.

    #295 2 years ago
    Quoted from Jtslade:

    What lady could refuse this extreme level of sexy? Two rows of pins... No woman could say no..

    Alot of men wouldnt back down from that challenge either

    #296 2 years ago

    Back to topic, other day saw a energetic couple over 70 absolutely kicking butt on GB pro before heading over to put time in on a MET. Pin hogs.
    Maybe pin guys get more and keep more girls too.
    Pass me the Depends!

    Agreed. I only have one gigantic C3PO Pez dispenser that talks and holds about 10 packs of Pez, battery died years ago. Other than that, pinball it is.

    I knew that was coming. But I thought that was a fairly level headed request.

    I usually hang out in my basement, play my pins, and put out the "vibe". My wife usually tells me to turn it down and closes the door.

    some of our more active users are also active in the LGBT community. They either have thick skin or find Pinside to be welcoming enough.

    I personally think it is a little of both. I find pinside to be very tolerant of most people regarless of their personal views and more than anything pinside tends to error on the side of free speech so long as not a personal attack. Pinside tends to take a strong stance against hate speak, gun talk, and personal bashing and that is evident by what gets moderated and what does not by the voulenteer staff.
