I just wanted to add that before anyone fires off any stupid emails to anyone, be advised that an electronic threat, harrassment, or other "not nice note", even to someone you don't agree with, is still a threat, harrassment, or "not nice note" and the threatener, harrasser, or "not nice note" writer can be prosecuted.

It seems like this guy likes to sue, call the press, and write to the police, legislators, etc. As with rule #2 in the CGTalk forum policies...

2.) Engage your brain before your mouth. You are responsible for your own words and any harm they may cause.

Yes it seems from the email correspondence they've got there that Jack Thompson is a very angry little person.
Looks to me like he's trying to position himself for a suit against the Penny guys by denying he emailed them first etc.

Anyone who wants to email him, just keep it civilised and intelligent, anything else triggers more knee jerk publicity stunts(like calling in the FBI over threatening emails).

Funny though, his "stop emailing me or else" sounds a bit like a threat too, a little hypocritical? Couldn't be! ;-)

That's why you gotta use satire. Flatter him with insults.

i wonder, if he wants to sue all violent video game companies, will he sue the US Army for producing America's Army?

no because america's army is only a ruthless terrorist killing training machine, not a ruthless cop killing training machine.


and yes floyd is right about firing off any stupid emails, but i think it should still be out there, for those of us who can write ...intelligent emails.....
