He's done it again.


Recommended Posts

Alright, so, remember that guy we hadn't heard anything out of for awhile?

...I think it's about time we had an update from Jack Thompson. Yep. He's at it again. And this time, it's ridiculing the dead! No, seriously, check it out!

January 2nd, 2006 A gamer named Mitchell S. with the online screenname "Kuja105" who posted on a few online videogame forums (including GameFaqs.com and MetalGearSolid.org) committed suicide. He posted a message in both forums detailing his intent to end his own life, citing overwhelming complications with school and finances. Later, members from the site contacted Mitchell's family to find out the grave news. They reported it to their online community, and posted a tribute to their passed friend on the front page of metalgearsolid.org." A very brief period of initial disbelief was followed by a barrage of replies from fellow forum members pleading that he not take his life, trying to talk him out of it. For days, no word was heard from Mitchell. Fearing the worst, members and administration from metalgearsolid.org began searching for contact information, spending hours on the phone trying to get in touch with him. Finally on January 4, Ryan K., an administrator at metalgearsolid.org, got him on the phone and spent hours desperately trying to talk him out of it. Sadly, Mitchell soon ended his own life by consuming antifreeze and painkillers. Mr. Jack Thompson then sent in the following letter regarding the situation to MetalGearSolid.org, one of the forums frequented by Mitchell, where he was known well:

"Your "gamer friend" will find peace through the Lord, Jesus Christ, but sadly it's too late for that.

There is a void in every heart. You can fill it up with the things of God, or the things not of God. This unfortunate soul chose to fill it up with combat games. The playing of these video games is masturbatory activity, meaning senseless self-stimulation. If you gamers could use a dictionary you would know that that term is not necessarily a sexual one.

The real tragedy here extends beyond the life and death of this one fellow. There are literally millions of young people and young adults whose despair is deepend by turning to the things of this world and then finding them meaningless.

All of you gamers need to put down the controllers and get a life. The utter inanity of the vast majority of postings here shows how vapid "gaming" really is.

You are one of the cheerleaders for this wasting of time and the wasting of lives. Do you feel any remorse for having contributed to this "culture of death?" Of course not. Hey, let's all play MORE games, and ignore all the really productive things to do with our lives.

Let's pretend to be shocked that a gamer might descend into deeper depression, as his gamer "buds," knowing he was killing himself, couldn't figure out how to call 911 themselves for him. That would have involved leaving their computers I guess. Sad. Sad for all of you." [128] [129]

On January 20, 2006, MetalGearSolid.org issued their response:

"Once again, Mr. Thompson, you've proven that your ignorance knows no bounds. We're not going to participate in this war you wish to wage against us -- we're bigger than that. We're bigger than you.

This is a case where our tragedy is greater than the sum of our transgressions. The fact that you want to exploit the loss that both we and his family have suffered to forward your own selfish, religiously driven ambitions speaks volumes about the integrity (or lack, thereof) of your character, and it only serves to strengthen our resolve.

You can continue to try and discredit us and insult us, though no true man of God would do such a thing. We pity you and your ignorance, and only hope that someday you can come to terms with and mature away from your biggotry. As Metal Gear Solid fans, we have learned to believe in the best of individuals. We've learned to show charity. We've become better people, and through the loss of our friend, we've become a closer-knit community.

We forgive you, Jack, and we hope that God will do the same for you."

What a fucking idiot. Seriously.

This seriously angers me, what kind of sick individual actually pushes his own agenda on the site where someone had just committed suicide.

"Call 911". You can't call 911 for someone who wants to commit suicide, all it will do is remove him from his home, but not his mindset. Secondly, I guess I must have missed something here: the only connection to videogames this kid had was posting on a site releated to Metal Gear, so where does the videogame factor come into play in any of this?

I don't get it, it's like he's basically a 13 year old troll except in an middle aged man's body?

That's exactly what I was thinking.

And really, most thirteen year old trolls don't get this kind of media attention. As much as I love to hate him, he probably really gets off on the fact that people are talking about him all the time.

That is very sad. The loss of life and then using it to add more reason for his campaign. It's sickening.

I'd really like to give him a swift kick in his tiny nuts.

Sadly, it would prove everything he says. Anything we say or want to do to him will only be to his benefit. I've heard many people say they would love to kill him or do away with him. It would only make him a martyr. Truly sad.

Lets see how many endorsments he loses this time. CHOOO CHOOO Political suicide train commin through...... again.

I don't really think he cares. I think he realizes that his moment in the spotlight is more or less over with, so he's just trying to stir up as much shit as he possibly can to hold onto his remaining thread of fame.
