nOe - what was this about? Sounds like the guy has too much time on his hands. Guess I could look it up, but seems you've been following it better.

"Revenge is a dish best served cold".

I love it.

John Bruce “Jack” Thompson (born July 25, 1951) is an American attorney and activist, based in Coral Gables, Florida. Thompson, a Christian conservative and a Republican[1], is known for his public advocacy of conservative Christian moral standards.

After an initial foray into politics, Thompson concentrated his legal efforts against perceived obscenity, particularly in rap music and broadcasts by radio personality Howard Stern. More recently, he has focused on violence as well, particularly in the content of computer and video games and their alleged effects on children.[2] He is a vocal advocate of banning stylized violence in video games, a role for which he became known in 1997, while representing the parents of the three students killed in the Heath High School shooting.

His involvement with music, gaming and the media (and especially use of legal threats) have raised questions about First Amendment rights. The Florida Bar Association is currently seeking sanctions against Thompson for inappropriate conduct.

Jack Thompson is a self proclaimed "Game Expert" and routinely goes on such newsworthy (holding back my laughter on that one) channels as fox news and basically thinks all gamers are idiots, he's right and everyone is out to get him, literally.

Jack Thompson (attorney - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

The wiki says it much better than I can, and probably with less insults at the raving retard-in-a-bucket

He basically believes that all shootings are because of first person shooters and other violent video games. GamePolitics.com » Blog Archive » Jack Thompson, Seeking Killer’s Video Game History, Threatens NIU with Lawsuit for example. Despite never tying them together at any time, he never seems to go away and is seen as more of an attention whore than an actual attorney.

he believes that all games which involve shooting (especially gta) cause people to start shootings. he ignores the fact that most of these people were actually insane to some degree before doing this. millions of people play games but only a small number kills. and they kill because of other things.

Thompson also claims that gta can be used as a simulator for such shootings. that claim is ridiculous because if you ever played gta, you'd know how "realistic" it is.
