How far will Jack Thompson go? He has surprised us before with some of the most ridiculous arguments and court cases, but this is something I have never expected. Jack Thompson has sent a letter to Strauss Zelnick (Take Two's executive) mother with some pretty harsh wording.

The pornography and violence that your son trafficks in is the kind of stuff that most mothers would be ashamed to see their son putting into the hands of other mothers’ children, but, hey, your son Strauss has recently assured the world that he is "a Boy Scout, everybody knows that." I’d love to see the merit badges that Scout Troop handed out. Is there a Ted Bundy merit badge? If so, your loving son deserves one now. It should be red and green, for obvious reasons.

This is just one insulting paragraph out of the whole letter. Sadly, there are a lot more. Jack even references the Bible.

Shame on Jack for making such an idiotic move. The funniest part is is that it will do absolutely nothing. Read it here.

Love the way he refuses to believe that stores are selling the game legally, and only to adults. Also, and no age verification online? Hmm... how about... needing to be 18 to own a credit card anyways?

I think I've seen this on Wikipedia a few days ago. Oh, well. He's still a fucking moron that will die of old age in 15 years.

Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine. :D

Aw, my first post. You may call it "arrogant". I prefer "foreshadowing".

Agreed. That's why there are rating systems, Mr. Thompson... The problem with Jack is that he is more on throwing rawther harsh words on people than giving proper and sound advice... I hope this guy would shut up and do something more productive than ruining some person's day...

Just because he isn't allowed to annoy Rockstar & Take Two about GTA being violent & blah,blah,blah, he now goes to the T2's executive's mother?

JT is seriously an asshole.----- and that was an understatement. :)

Man he is stupid! It doesn't even make any since to do that. Such childish antics to tells someone's mother that they are upsetting him. Poor lady probably doesn't even know what is going on, just out of no where starts getting these harassing letters from some creepy stranger. She should not be getting harassed by sad lonely pathetic excuse for a human being such as Jack Thompson. Shame on you Jack "Boy Scout" Thompson.

MY GOD! WTF is this guy's problem? I hate him! I have ever since his shit about GTA III. He really needs to do some reseach. How many gamers actually do the things he says we do, or take it as the right thing to do? Who here EVER feels it necessary to kill a prostitue afterwards? For that matter, who EVER uses the prostitues at all? Jack is a complete pussy!

(Does anyone watch Stargate here? JT is another Senator Kinsey.)

I think he has taking this a tad too far, sending letters to family members of the Chief Exec is wrong, if I were Zelnick I would sue JT for sending provocative letters. This guy will never give up but I dont think he will do anything major to stop the game selling.

JT needs to know that Strauss Zelnick is old enough to do this stuff, and telling his mother can't do anything. So in conclusion:

Wow, if he sent that to my mom, he'd get fucking owned. I'm sure he will be getting owned for sending that anyway.
