There was the "fifty-four (54) days" threat concerning Bully. But, more recently, JT blamed Bill Gates for the Virginia Tech shootings as well, with Counterstrike as the scapegoat-of-the-day.

The man is completely, dangerously insane.

Indeed. I guess Jack's not taking the "Not Being Allowed to Sue TakeTwo" very well so had to pick up the next random company.

I finally know what needs to happen for me to want to see Microsoft win a court case tho.

*edit*

As quoted from the news story in question:
Here’s the deal, Mr. Gates: Either Microsoft undertakes dramatic, real steps, through its marketing, wholesale, and retail operations to assure that Halo 3 is not sold, via the Internet and in stores, directly to anyone under 17, or I shall proceed to make sure that Microsoft is held to that standard by appropriate legal means. I have done that before successfully as to Best Buy, and I shall do so again as to Microsoft and all retailers of Halo 3.


With this alone, M$ has nothing to fear. They will NOT be selling DIRECTLY to anyone 17 or under. They ship to wholesalers and retailer types, not kids.

Additionally Best Buy is a distributor/department type store. Microsoft isn't. Best Buy in this kind of case are the people that are suppose to enforce the ratings. M$'s liability ended by adding the "M" rating, which is essentially them telling the stores what needs to be done with it.

Haven't heard a whole lot out of ol' Jackhole lately. He (somehow) passed his psych test, but other than that he's been fairly low profile lately, as far as I can tell.

Until now, that is.

Greetings,

Haven't heard a whole lot out of ol' Jackhole lately.


And I had taken such a measure of tranquility out of that fact.

But you live to shatter my peace of mind don't you. Couldn't have come back here with some GOOD news or something? Y'know like Starcraft 2 goes gold tommrow? Even if you were lying I'd STILL prefer that lie to this truth...this awful, awful, Jack-Shaped truth.

Speaking of shapes: I'm sure Jack Thompson could identify a rectangle. But if I were to present him with a DVD case holding a M rated game, what are the odds that he could say 'rectangle' in that situation without adding '- of Doom' or 'Of Sin' or something else appropriately batshit crazy?

I remain, as always,

Good job, Jack. You're the man. Keep up the good fight, or something. *shrug*

Man, it seems like Jackhole is kicking things into high gear. He's been rather busy over a relatively short time lately.

Jack Thompson Seeks to Have Halo 3 Declared a Public Nuisance in Florida

What a guy.

(EDIT)

What's even more funny, based on "THE FACTS" section from the full text of his complaint, is that Jack apparently thinks that Halo 3 is going to be released on October 25, 2007.

This is, of course, a full month after its actual release date.

What a guy. What a guy.

(/EDIT)

Okay, this one's a bit strange, even for good old Jack.

Judge Spanks Jack Thompson for Including Gay Porn with Court Filing

He compares himself to Paul Revere in this one. Somehow.

Not content to keep his legal shenanigans confined to his home state of Florida, Jack is now suing the Alabama bar as well.

He's really on a roll these days. The sense of schadenfreude in me is hoping that all of this is indicative of his final death spiral. On the other hand, I won't have anything to post about anymore if and when he finally does burn out and gives it up once and for all. :roll:

Yeeeaaah... I thought that was the most deliciously hypocritical thing I've seen, like, ever.

I mean, let's see: We have a guy here who shoots his mouth off and almost never has any idea what the Hell he's talking about. His entire career is built upon contrived controversy, which is absolutely ridiculous.

And yet he has the abject gall to criticize someone else for doing the exact same blessed thing? My mind is officially blown.
