I’ll repeat what I said on a Facebook topic that was similar.
- have you talked to a league official or tournament director about the behavior? I have heard things multiple times about someone quitting, complaining about inappropriate behavior and feeling fearful. When I speak to my spouse who is a league official, he k ows nothing of it, meaning the person complains to their friends or on a public forum about the behavior. Talk to the people who are there on that day, not 6 months later in a forum.
- Never be afraid to stand up for yourself or someone in your group. When I see someone abuse a machine, I’ll speak up and tell them. Or have someone else in your group speak up if you are uncomfortable saying something.
I think pinball is like a lot of places, people would rather complain and post to forums than talk to people face to face ro resolve it.
