Default Re: Jack Thompson's at it again!

Saying "there's more of us than you, don't **** with us" implies a forceful response no matter how you look at it. When someone is bothering you by being obnoxious the best thing to do is ignore them, not reply by being equally obnoxious. The worst thing we could do is reply with equal force because all that will do is make him that more apparent to people, which is exactly what he wants. Most people in the country have never even heard of this guy, let's keep it that way.

So what are you suggesting? Should we lobby to silence Jack Thompson? Should we clutter his mailbox with hate mail? Let the air out of his tires? Smash his windows? What? What is the point of responding to this man?
Agreed. He should be ignored. His crusades will never amount to anything, because for once, the community and the big corporations are on the same side.
