Quoted from egyptrus:
You say that as if you think those folks care about the hobby...they don't. I'm certain this happens in every other hobby as well. There are the hoarder types that collect stuff for the sake of having it. There are also the types that collect in the hopes that "someday" they'll be worth something and they'll be able to sell them for a profit.
The people who do that aren't helping to get games into homes and increase the hobby, that's for sure, but I don't think they really care.
This is true. I certainly cannot read minds, nor can anything I say out here influence anyone that doesn't care about the hobby. I enjoy getting these old beauties running, I've passes a few on to grateful collectors, and if I have no interest in doing that with a particular game, I let someone else go for it. Sue me if I think the hoarders are doing a disservice to the pinball hobby. The folks that are in it that actually give a crap know who they are, and so do the money grubbing hoarders- even if they won't admit it.
