OK, I know it's old news by now, but we've been really, really, really busy
. Anyway, JACK THOMPSON HAS BEEN DISBARRED
Mark Methenitis, Joystiq's Law of the Game
attorney/blogger, says of the news, "While I know a lot of people in the industry truly dislike Jack, I hope people show a bit of respect for a man who has just lost his livelihood. I also hope people realize that this doesn't mean we've heard the last from Jack. I wouldn't be surprised to see him start his own nonprofit group to continue to advance his viewpoint."
I am an extremely compassionate person. In fact, I'm probably compassionate to a fault. But, all I can think of to say to Mr. Thompson right now is, "Suck it, Jack". This man has proven to be little more than an ambulance chaser and a fame seeker. He used families of victims of horrific crimes and said, "Videogames did this". Then, he went on to sue and/or threaten to sue
anyone who dared speak out against his perverted view of gamers.
Mr. Thompson did this to himself. He is a mean man and he was disbarred because he broke the law...several times. I'm not going to show respect for someone who clearly has so little respect for me. So, good luck, Jack. I'm sure we'll see you again, but, at least we'll be able to laugh at you and your disbarment when we do.
