If you mean to be funny, not necessarily.

If you mean to stir the pot, yes.

If the author of the ad asks me to, yes.

If your comment was on the forum instead of the classifieds, no.

Me being mad for having to explain myself at after being woken up by messages from some saying you are taunting me on the site at 6am in Vancouver? Yes. I wrote it in the classifieds rules.

Je vous donne ce qui vous est dû... vous vouliez un forum sans drama... c'est ce que je fais. Tout simplement.

OK. So the discussion is on. I am awake now.

First, transferring the content from the Classifieds ad to the forum...

Gonna keep it as positive as I can this early in the morning...2 reasons....

1- Your friends are requesting it. Keep it positive, keep it clean.
viewtopic.php?f=21&t=23444

You and 2 others openly pointed out an ad as a scam, when it was merely a new member posting a potential trade. He later posted a location, pics and price value after I merely asked nicely he did so.

2- Negativity got so bad while I was gone that it threatened the existence of this site, literally. I will show you written proof one day, but that is not important. But what is important is that it is now rectified but meant that I have to monitor things on a regular basis. I haven't had to do it much, other than clean up a couple of classified ads in which some were having a field day.

So, that's it. I am not pointing fingers, nor fanning the flame for drama. Just explaining why.

lol. Don't worry Mike. Give it 3 more years or so and you will begin to understand it here.
You have to read every single thread posted in the last 5-6 years in order to stay "sharp".
In English and en francais...
Translation just doesn't do justice to the humour...

Here is what I posted and "deleted" the moment Sparky made this thread...

On the road again...
Just to keep Hide... in line again...
Keeping trouble away from my supposed friends...
Aren't you happy, "super glad" your on the road again...

Sparky might have read it, and may not have before I deleted it.
Deletion was because it may have been perceived as "instigatory" or fanning flames early this morning.
Those who know me well would know that was not the intent, and the intent was humour...
But, I removed it to post later... (now is good) and it only works after a post like yours (from someone confused) - rightly so...

Anyway, as we were...

And, is only funny for those of us that know Sparky is traveling the country very heavily currently, and being woken up in BC at 6 am something is kinda annoying when it is 9am in Montreal and Toronto...

To further make a final point...

Chambahz is our buddy Drew here in the GTA. Drew has been a member of maaca since December 2012, joining here about 9 months after I did. Not a scam. Not new.
Although he doesn't post often, Drew always has nice pins for sale when they are listed. Drew always offers his pins for sale to us on the forums first before kijiji sales.

I guess this is a prime example why the vets should pop up and post a little more often. Great seller here. Fun pin. No comment on pinball prices as it is what it is...

And Poolman isn't dead, which most of us who know him are aware of his continued aliveness...

LOL ok I'll play. So like Scott I was going to post when I seen this but didn't want to wake anyone who might be sleeping in another time zone...
But Cap covered it and then Scott has made it all clear as mud like always. :-)
Here is what I would have said
Chambahz posted a game without following the F/S Rules and also he Doesn't post often here so its the internet (must be a scam right!)
Phil called him out for not following the F/S F/T Rules and offered him $200 bucks cause anyone who knows Phil everything is $200 bucks
some others said it was scam Ad So I'm guessing Ian was asked to clean the ad up and requested a location and the proper info.
Ian Cleaned up the F/S ad and removed the comments (since they didn't follow the F/S rules) In turn this stirred the pot just like Phil was looking for.
Phil Poked the sleeping Bear Umm ya he really was sleeping LOL by posting this thread and a comment. (Hello Sparky!! are you going to delete this comment too?!) because his post was removed.
Ian tries to play good cop now cause he and many others like me want MAACA to stay alive and well but shit is funny if you know the back story.
Barry seen the post and must not have seen any of the other post so "he got confused" That's easy to do here as well.
Scott a long time member cleared up who "Chambahz" is, Drew here in the GTA. Drew has been a member of maaca since December 2012
Free Bump for Chambahz NO I don't know him....personally I don't think lol
So if you want to Buy a StarWars LE HUO It's legit viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23547
HUO, plays and functions perfectly.
Might consider some trades (Met Pre/LE, TWD,) but prefer cash.
Was asking $11,600 on PBRev but no serious offers so game is now o.b.o.
Game is located in Toronto.
Notice I used a bunch or real names? I guess I might know few people even if they are not sure if they know me, so ya been around for a bit too!
But hey what do I know I live in Hamilton and its in my profile location so by living in this city I must be Shane or whatever he calls him self these days (aka Mark Uttley, etc, etc)
Ass-hat makes it hard for me to sell or buy anything Just by living in the Hammer I'm guilty by city association so that why I buy among the collectors.
Mark Uttley There something else for a new member to search and Google!
Keep Maaca alive and well Sparky and the other Admin's keep us pot stirring pinball Freaks in line....

In due time, the story of what happened and why I had to come back will come out, but honestly, it is a good thing that it happened. When there is a stink in the house, it doesn't get better by ignoring it. You roll up your sleeves, crack open a window to air out, and get cleaning. In the end, all benefit.

As for who contacted me, it is of no importance, nor is it bad. Not everyone knew I was out west. If they would have texted and emailed me at 6am MTL time, sure... But am I pissed? Nah. People care. It's OK. And NO ONE pointed out a single person out. I just got some heads ups that drama was possibly brewing. That's all.

OK guys. I think this is enough in this thread. There really isn't much more to say. Just enjoy the site and pinball. I am. Heading for the Edmonton Beercade for some fun tonight.

There. Since all is said, why not change the title of the thread at this point, and use the classic subject-killer line on MAACA:

I like pizza.

LOL

My favorite? Tough call... I know I don't like Hawaiian. I love pineapple, but not on my pie. I do love seafood pizza with spicy olive oïl, but if going more classic, pepperoni-bacon-mushroom with extra asiago cheese for a bit of kick is always a winner. But I would go for Boston PIzza's Mediterranean pizza as well in a heartbeat. Sundried tomatoes are the shiznit.

My fav pizza is one i invented.
Marinated chicken breast cooked on the bbq.cut in slices , i like to use Naan bread as the crust.
Spread a Nice thickness (quarter inch) of bullz -eye bbq sauce.
Put on generous pieces of chicken and cooked Bacon chunks.
A bit of red oignons to the taste.
Sparkle some parmigiano regianno 5 years old.
And then after cooking 10mins.put on your favorite graded cheese.
I like to use a mix of mozz and orange cheddar and 2mins at broil.
Then ENJOY !

BBQ CHICKEN BACON PIZZA (tm)

I have for some time now développée une aversion for pizza.

Donner moi de la salad, parce que suis a vegetable and very much plus content comme ca.
http://www.montrealpinball.com
http://www.northstarpinball.com

Maxed out at 10 machines, no more no less. Toujours a 10 machines, pas moins pas plus.
Une règle suivi gueri de tout. A rule respected can cure anything.

A philosophy of doing shall rule til the days when I can no longer "do" arrive. Because when I am too old to wipe my own ass, adjust an AX relay or relieve a woman from sighing, there will be only memories to fill my time. So, the task at hand is to build a RRSP of memories, come hell or calm tides.

P.S. A man needs something to do besides contemplate how crazy everyone has become in a world of overly exaggerated self-importance upheld and maintained by the new dumb.
