Jack Thompson Update
Topic: The ConWeb
Remember Jack Thompson, the certifiably goofy, blackmail-prone DA-turned-anti-video-game advocate? Well, his video game crusade continues apace, as does his goofiness.

The online gamer zine Gamer Revolution notes that Thompson has taken offense to an AIM buddy icon posted on a sister site depicting a gruesome death for Thompson (well, as much as you can depict one in a buddy icon). Even though it was removed from the site per a cease-and-desist letter from Thompson, that wasn't enough. Thompson is demanding the arrest of the zine's president because the removal of the icon "constitutes an admission of guilt."

The zine concludes that Thompson is "a litigious, headline-hungry lunatic who routinely exhibits a startling lack of common sense." Sounds about right.
