I know I don't have to even explain who Jack Thompson is to anyone whos an avid gamer, but just the same lets all see what the ugly little troll is
up to now? Bear with me now folks...
SOFIA (AFP) - A 21-year-old American online gaming fan broadcast his suicide on a Bulgarian Internet forum.
Named as Mitchell S., the gamer switched on his web cam and swallowed a large amount of motor antifreeze and pills after complaining about family
problems and a lack of money, forum administrator Boyan Georgiev told Bulgaria's BGNES news agency on Wednesday.
Other forum members thought the man nicknamed "Kudjo" was joking even though he rambled for six hours about the effects of the substances and
disappeared from view several times.
Now this doesnt immediately have anything to do with Jack, but sure enough he comes out of his hiding place to take advantage of the tragedy by
sending a rather callous and just plain wrong letter to the site that the gamer frequented metalgearsolid.org. Unfortunately at the moment the letter
(which I believe was posted on their forums) is unavailable because the forums have been disabled, but you can read what I belive is either an excerpt
or the whole thing in the following newspost
over at CAD comics.
One would hope Jack's stunt (and it is just that, a pathetic stunt) would be the end of the whole mess but no, it comes out later on
that the news agencies are carrying completely BS infomration such as
quoting people claiming to be administrators on the site invovled who had no affiliation with the hosting but were in fact part of the original design
crew who created the site, along with absolutely horrible claims that the guy actually broadcast the suicide on the MGS:TUS site via webcam.
Now before I get to where I tear a new hole in Jack Thompson I would like to say its incredibly sad this person took their life and at the same time I
am amazed an online community can be so concerned about someones well-being that they would put forth the effort to find out what happened in a case
such as this, it almost gives me hope for the internet, that is until I read things posted by Jack Thompson...
Theres been alot of bashing of Jack on the internet, and at first I figured he was a one-shot wonder just looking for his 15 minutes in the light, but
he keeps coming back again and again inserting himself where he doesnt belong and screwing up horribly. I even wondered if maybe most of the
anti-jack bashing was from offended fanboys but after this last stunt I feel that every harsh, nasty, foul and mean thing ever said towards the man is
completely justified and deserved. He outright !@#$!@# profits from such a tragedy as sucidide, then goes one step further to insult people
afterwards just so he can feel like hes doing his part for whatever 'god' he believes he still serves (I don't think any christian or even the
almighty him/herself would claim this man as a fellow in their faith).
All that said; rest in peace Mitchell...
