My new hero...
« on: September 02, 2005, 09:28:55 pm »
Jack Thompson. Decency advocate? Hero? Comedian? Senile old creep? Who knows.  I suspect he just got sick of 8 years olds skull fucking him on Counter-Strike or something and just lost it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Thompson_(attorney)

And http://www.vgcats.com/jack.php makes an interesting read.

So does the site in my sig, it was originally just an anti-Thompson organization, although it now it voices it's opinion on other games being censored (read, banned)

I thought Thompson's responses to emails from gamers were interesting.  :P

Apparently we're all a bunch of "worthless geeks who deserved nothing more than to be insulted."

Heh, this coming from a politician...
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Thompson isn't a politician, just a deranged lawyer. And the UK is likely to find their own equivalent soon enough..joy.

Well I bet you that Thompson will run for some kind of office soon enough.  :P

I love Jack Thompson. Why?

Any man who can piss off all the gamers of world, make an ass of himself, and get what he wants is a hero in my books.

The man is brilliant. Fucking nuts, but a hero nonetheless.

I'm surprised he continues to get away with what he does.
