Well it appears Mr Thompson has received his flowers.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about you can get the full back story HERE.
But essentially Jack Thompson is an Anti-Video game crusader who more and more seems completely devoid of logic or basic human thought. He has vilified the gaming community trying to label us as the scourge of modern society calling us (now affectionately used by the community) pixelantes. Now as can be guessed Jack has taken a lot of crap from the less mature more outgoing section of our demographic. Now to try and offset this and start some kind of constructive intelligent dialog Flowers For Jack was started. It’s main goal was to send a large amount of flowers along with a civil letter to Mr Thompson to outline our position and get a dialog going. Well getting back to the issue at hand it appears Jack has received the Flowers and is ignoring the letter completely as he is blaming Take 2 Interactive (makers of Grand Theft Auto) and Joystiq (the website that reported on the story). Many people were a part of Flowers For Jack right from the catalysts of the idea Alyson Burch and George Ettinger right down to the donators and signers like myself (Liam From Vancouver BC Canada) from around the world. Please go to the following links see our letter and see Jacks. Please don’t let him twist this to his own ends.
