Over at AMN we've been listening to self-appointed anti-game crusader Jack Thompson as he sends out wave after wave of press releases, and now AMN's Casey Ayers has refuted Thompson's talking points in his latest editorial, Clear and Present Absurdity.
The point of today's article is to show just how wrong the approach he is taking is and to show that no matter how absurd this all may seem to those of us in the gaming world, his actions and those of others like him stand poised to potentially destroy our industry.
The gaming community has watched in amazement as Thompson lashed out at game publishers, developers, and even players. His supporters are beginning to desert him, his detractors are starting to laugh at him instead of fight him, and his habit of treating anyone not in a position to boost his image with absolutely no respect is well known by now. I sincerely hope that this editorial can help bury Thompson's unruly tactics once and for all.
