    Default Jack Thompson

    Jack Thompson has sunk to a new low - speaking ill of the recently deceased.

    There is a void in every heart. You can fill it up with the things of God, or the things not of God. This unfortunate soul chose to fill it up with combat games. The playing of these video games is masturbatory activity, meaning senseless self-stimulation. If you gamers could use a dictionary you would know that that term is not necessarily a sexual one.

    The real tragedy here extends beyond the life and death of this one fellow. There are literally millions of young people and young adults whose despair is deepend by turning to the things of this world and then finding them meaningless.

    All of you gamers need to put down the controllers and get a life. The utter inanity of the vast majority of postings here shows how vapid "gaming" really is.

    You are one of the cheerleaders for this wasting of time and the wasting of lives. Do you feel any remorse for having contributed to this "culture of death?" Of course not. Hey, let's all play MORE games, and ignore all the really productive things to do with our lives.

    Let's pretend to be shocked that a gamer might descend into deeper depression, as his gamer "buds," knowing he was killing himself, couldn't figure out how to call 911 themselves for him. That would have involved leaving their computers I guess.

    Sad. Sad for all of you
    The forum he posted that to seems to have been taken down (probably due to bandwidth issues.) I heard about it on Ctrl Alt Del

    A metal gear solid forum regular commited suicide & the other forum regulars posted an obiturary. They went to quite great lengths to find out who he was & try to talk him out of it when he stated that he intended to take his own life.

    That story says to me that the forum regulars have created a true online community that actually care about each other, but Jack Thompson used it as an oppertunity to slander them all.

    so what the guy wrote might have been a bit off colour, but also might be a bit of truth there.

    I suggest you do a bit of research, Jack Thompson is a person who exploits peoples loss for his own gain, He is a snakeoil salesman.

    Jack Thompson still hasn't been ridiculed out of existance?

    I thought after he started a fight with penny-arcade and vgcats at the same time it would have been enough

    http://www.penny-arcade.com/2005/10/17
    http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2005/10/14

    He's been around for ages campaigning against anything he can convince people to sue for, I *think* he was involved in suing some musian because a kid killed themselves while listening to a song with backmasking on it.

    He threatens to sue at the drop of a hat, and deserves to be given as much crap as possible.

    Why should you bury lawyers 20 feet underground?

    Because deep, deep down... Lawyers are actually OK.
