Big Jack Attack

Anti-game activist Jack Thompson under investigation (thanks Mike Martinez) reports on the latest bits of insanity from the world of Jack Thomson, Crusading Attorney™, saying his shenanigans are subjecting him to the type of scrutiny he seems so eager to focus on the actions of others. Here's a bit on the aftermath of the whole modest proposal/Penny Arcade (story) episode:
The threats then escalated. Jack then faxed a letter to the Seattle Police Department claiming that Penny Arcade was "criminally harassing" him, and urging the arrest of "this little extortion factory".

At this point, the nerds swung into action. Penny Arcade forum members wrote, edited and sent letters and faxes to the Florida Bar Association detailing Thompson's activities and urging the review of his license to practice law. Jack Thompson has already received a reprimand by the FBA for his antics in 1998, and according to a spokesperson, the letters and faxes have been received and forwarded to the disciplinary committee.

Already, other activists against video game violence are starting to distance themselves from Jack Thompson. Earlier this month, the National Institute on Media and the Family wrote a letter to Jack, asking him to remove the link to their organization from his web site. While Mr. Thompson's fifteen minutes of fame may be waning, the issue of violence in video games remains a hot topic.

Captain, it's now greytop@comcast.net according to his domain registration. It was previously jackpeace@comcast.net when I was in the business of sending him a series of ludicrous, half-drunk dissertations but I think we've crushed that account.
