Can this be classified as harrassment? I'm just wondering, because he's sent letters like these before to T2's president's mother before. I think sending letters like these could be considered harrassment, could it? I have no idea, I'm not lawyer, but god I hope it is.

Well given how Thompson does the exact opposite of what a lawyer is supposed to do I'm pretty sure this is harassment on some level.

Is it weird that every time you've quoted me, my inbox only says "[quote]" and not the name of the thread that you quoted me in? Happend every time you've quoted me so far...

But this constant letter sending, promising the wraith of God, or telling them that they're sinners, it can't be very legal especially for, as you said, an ex-lawyer.

I morbidly hope that T2 sues him.

If god does exist, then he is not a kind and merciful god, if he was, this prick would've died ages ago.

Why is this news?

Why does his opinion matter anymore?

The almost-pleasant tone of the email is belied by comments made by Thompson in an email sent to GamePolitics on December 26, in which he called Zelnick an "incompetent, reckless goofball" and said he was gearing up to lead a shareholder revolt against the current management team. "TTWO is today trading at about $7 per share.

Really? He called him a "goofball"? That's just sad...

I never liked Jack Thompson but just out of interest how does he consider him self a friend of T2 and is Jewish or christian I don't know that much about ether of those religions but I thought Jewish people said Shalom.

Ranooth:
So now he wants all Christians and Jews (im guessing Shalom is a Jewish term, i have no idea on religions) to hate him as well as gamers. Well this twat has balls, il give him that.

"Shalom" means one of 3 things depending on how you use it; Peace, Hello, and Goodbye. And now you know! And knowing is half the battle!

What's the other half?

Fighting it? How the hell should I know, I don't write these things!

AceDiamond:
You know I just realized he spent time talking in the third person according to some of those quotes.

His self-absorbtion knows no bounds. It's like when Jerry Falwell died Jack Thompson decided he'd have to take his place as "that other nutty Christian guy"

Oh yeah. Wasn't Falwell that guy who claimed that 9/11 happened because god was angry at feminists?

And homosexuals, too. Don't forget that.

I'm almost starting to pity this guy. Almost. I mean, just look at his picture, Jack used to a clean, well-dressed (if not respectable) "lawyer." Now he's just a unshaven couch potato slowly cooking his mind inside out while gently caressing an unwrapped copy GTA IV, so subtly repressing his innate desire to play it.

Shakespeare:
The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.

The real reason Jack wrote that letter is because he is angry at how poorly his shares are doing.

Divine fucking retribution? are you kidding me? Scripture says so? Im not religiuos but i'm going to go ahead and assume that the passage "And so, in retribution of Marks ill gotten fish sale profits, the lord smoteth his stock value twiceth over! and the people rejoiced." Doesnt exactly excist.

What a twat.

High-powered gunplay.

Duh.

All this talk about divine retribution, and all I see is how he's smiling slightly while holding his brand new copy of Niko Bellic joy.

This is hardly news, but as someone else said before, it's actually really funny to hear about Mr. Thompson's ramblings. As mean as such a statement is.

Jack Thompson is a fascinating man. Any other man with his level of insanity and hatred by others would have been in an asylum ages ago but not him... oh no...
This very letter shows several points of his insanity: "Curse you Take-Two, I shall make you suffer by buying more of your stocks that nobody wants to buy during the economic crisis" or "The economic crisis is caused by God because of your games"
I do not hate the man... of course I would put at least 10 bullets in his kneecaps or hit him on the head with a baseball bat covered in barbed wire, but this man is insane, he needs (no deserves) to spend the rest of his life in a tropical island far far away from any of us taking experimental electro-shock treatment.

Mental instability is what makes a great man these days.

Awwww, Isn't he cute?
earth to Jack. No one cares anymore.

Thanks GI... I mean dude.

I bet he is secretly a GTA fan, can't you he how happy he is ?

I'd just like to say, on behalf of Christains everywhere, this man doe not speak for us, and cannot be used as a representation of us.

And doesn't Blasphemy seem a tad more sinful than selling violent games to minors?

Who is your representative?

Very true, but left leaning publications like the Escapist and others will no doubt keep reporting on the guy's antics, regardless of the fact that the journalistic motives for doing so are largely sensationalist and agenda-driven.

The guy is old news, and even during his 15 minutes, his actions were made largely irrelevant by his over-the-top tomfoolery. He's a great punching bag for liberals though, so expect to see coverage on the Escapist every time he sneezes or breaks wind.

I'll take that.

Codgo:
He still making noise?

Hit him with a stick. Maybe that'll work.

007Loser:
We need to make a petition so that Jack Thompson sews his mouth shut.

Actually, I'm curious what his response would be if everyone on the Escapist signed a petition telling him to shut it. It probably wouldn't work, but I still want to hear his response.

Uh, what's a Jack Thompson?

When Jack Thompson is done failing at being a lawyer, he resorts to failing as a preacher!

The world being in economical meltdown has nothing to do with it..no it was god.

YES thats perfect, everyone mail there signature to my house, /sarcasm, maybe when i stop being lazy

Thank god that douchebag got disbarred, he should've gotten jailtime for slander and telling lies and wasting the tax payers dollars on ignorant shit he made up.

Thankfully, he has no credibility left, and shouldn't be given attention, just let him spew his hatred all he wants, if no one cares, he'll eventually stop. (hopefully)
