    I was wondering when he was going to stick his pin head into this. I just can’t believe he didn’t pin it on Rock Star.

    I don't understand why you guys continue to give him attention. That's clearly what he seeks, and you all say the same things everytime.

    Ignore him.

    I like that there's no references/evidence to support his claims.

    May as well blame Marshmellow Peeps.

    Who's next on his hit list? GE for providing electricity? Maybe the company who made the TV that Cho played his games on? What a farce.

    I can't ignore him.

    He wants to lay blame on society or corporations for this tragedy?
    How dare he? Honestly, how dare he?

    Hey, Jack Thompson, stop feeding the world this excrement that no one is accountable and business and society are to blame for everything.

    Perhaps if this crazy loser wasn't fed your dogma of "look how everything is affecting me" he would have felt more like he was empowered to change his own life.

    Probably not.

    But it just pisses me off to hear ignorant people say "This is Bush's fault" or "This is the school's fault" or now, in this case "This is Bill Gates' fault".

    This is a somber, horrible tragedy.
    Now this bastard is using it to fuel his own agenda.
    I normally don't get upset over things I read but I am pretty hot right now.

    Jux seriously took the words right out of my mouth. Don't listen, he is attempting to get a rise out of people. That is what gains him his fame.

    I love that he thinks a single game is so dangerous that it turns young people into killers but he never explains why the 10-25 million other people who played those same games are perfectly fine... I still think this all stems back to a game of Pong he lost.

    Video games prevent violence. You play videogames to unwind and sometimes vent your frustation and anger.

    I think he's trying to stir up the crowd over the VT tragedy in order to gain support for his cause. I don't think we should ignore him, in fact, we should openly mock him for the fool he is. To say nothing is to allow these shisters to think you agree with them.

    Why can't this guy just learn that he's become a fucking joke? Because he's stupid as shit, that's why.

    It's a story like this that makes me wish South Park would make fun of Jack Thompson already.

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Though I would love to see JT try and sue Microsoft.
    Pissing and hurricane spring to mind.
