Jack Thompson is notorious in the video gaming world as the Miami-based lawyer with a vendetta against the video game industry. Since 1999, Thompson has been involved in many controversial lawsuits and public scandals. To learn more about Jack and his history with the video game industry, head to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Thompson_(attorney) The following petition has been sparked as a result of a recent news story involving video game fan who commited suicide recently, and Jack Thompson\'s reply to the situation. It has been seen as very rude and insulting, claiming that video games and their respective communities are \"senseless\", that gamers are of below-average intellegence, and that gaming is a \"masturbatory activity\". (See this site for a detailed explanation of the suicide http://news.gaminghorizon.com/media2/1137635340.3198.html and here for a report on Jack Thompson\'s reply http://www.kotaku.com/gaming/thompson/thompson-on-the-gamer-suicide-149939.php) Statements of this nature are bound to insult the community, and it\'s about time Jack was asked to stop his slander and unfair propaganda techniques. This petition is intended for Jack Thompson and Jack Thompson alone. The message is simple. \"Please stop\". Gaming is a legitimate pasttime, and the gaming community, industry, and spirit is too strong for you to break. (Wether you\'re a gamer or not..if you\'re sympathetic to the cause please sign..we need to get this message through)
