So once again Jack Thompson, the perfect case study of the Dunning-Kruger Effect, just can’t crawl back into the abyss where he came from and stop bothering the world. His antics initially cost him the ability to bring suits himself (he has to get another lawyer to sign off on any further lawsuits) which led to a permanent disbarment by the Florida Supreme Court. He tried unsuccessfully several times to get any of his anti-gaming lawsuits to go in his favor, he has failed to get state and federal legislatures to pass laws based on his perverted Idea that any violence in a game constitutes a “murder simulator”.
So what’s he up to now you ask. He’s suing Facebook for refusing to take down Facebook groups and members who post negative comments about him. Some of the better named groups include I Hate Jack Thompson and Jack Thompson should be smacked across the face with an Atari 2600.
Boo, fucking, hoo douche bag. Welcome to America where the First Amendment gives me the right to criticize you and your actions. You have a very unpopular opinion and trying to get the courts to stop people from criticizing you is
- un-american (see the Bill of Rights Jack ass
- Futile, (see any number of books and webpages about how the Internet works.)
Stopping Facebook will not stop the rage.
How about this. You don’t think certain games are fit for children, fine, I agree with you you. If only there was a rating system, that could be prominently displayed on the box at purchase that could warn parents that this game or that game is potentially inappropriate for THIER child. Oh Wait. There is. Its called the ESRB rating system. and you can find their rating on every single game for purchase in the US since its inception in 1994.
Please stop this “Think of the Children” bullshit cover you use. From comments you have made in court and to News outlets about how the “Bar’s pro-gay, humanist, liberal agenda”, this is a religious war to you. You want to control how others live their lives and you use children as a weapon to get at everyone. I can guarantee that if in some bizarre world you managed to get Video games banned it would not stop there. Zealots will never stop until the entire country follows their preferred way of living. I refuse to allow you and your narrowed minded opinions to dictate how I live my life and how I spend my leisure time.
