Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

October 6, 2008 -

Wondering how long it is until Jack Thompson's court-ordered disbarment becomes effective?

Wonder no more.

Longtime GamePolitics reader E. Zachary Knight (who is so dedicated that he volunteers for double duty as our comment moderator) has created a nifty extension for FireFox which counts down the time until Thompson's law career is just a bad memory.

Download it here.

I never notice Zack made this until today!   Nice work, Zack!

Tough luck Jack if your coming back then your having pink sparkly letters so we can enjoy the grilling.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Hey Jack remember the time you were disbarred from the Florida Bar which was impart due to your threats towards people???

 

Yeah I would rather spend 20 years learning from my own mistakes than spend them continuosly making threats that sound as adorable as "Look behind you, a three headed monkey!".

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

That's great, EZK.  I understand why you did it, too.  I basically made my website for my students as an excuse to learn HTML.

If you want to extend this little project of yours, it'd be great if you could make it customizable.  You know, so that once Jack IS gone we can still play with it.

Also, so you know, I went into the options to see if it WAS customizable, and it has now gotten the add-ons window stuck.  Something else to goof around with.

Have fun!

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Thanks for pointing that out. I have that fixed and the add-on page will be updated later today.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Send me an email and let me know what version of FF you are using, what version of the add-on you are installing and what your Operating System is.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Sooo.... how many threats to sue, to turn your home into a burned out building (figuratively speaking), claims of GP/ECA/Florida Bar conspiracies, or claims that it's actually a count down threat and he's called the FBI, have you gotten so far?  :)

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Well, there was this e-mail earlier today:

The below, which now appears at GamePolitics, helps make my point to the federal court that this has always been about the video game industry's efforts to silence its chief critic.  Thanks, Hal and Dennis, because with stupid enemies like you, I don't need any more friends, among the thousands I already have.  Honestly, are you both retarded?

...he has also promised to jump into this discussion with some additional nastiness for me and EZK in another e-mail:

I want to deal with Mr. Knight and with you.  You'll not be pleased.

 

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Just give him a warning that if he doesnt stop harassing us that we will file suit against him.  It was fun while it lasted, but he needs to just go to a psychologist and get help.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Only Jackie (since the passing of the disbarment, i no longer think its required i address him as Mr. Thompson anymore. That was the only form of respect i was giving him because he was still, in actuality, a lawyer) would think an internet counter would be a threat on his life. Because he knows JUST how the internet works, like Dennis' 'ads,' and his own hypocrisy by not allowing himself to respond in the comments section on his own.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Of course, the video game consumers were responsible for Jack's career self destructing. Not at all was it because of his own disregard for ethics or rules. Lack of compassion when harassing and trying to destroy his "opponents" just for jollies.

I think Jack is too stupid to realize it is too late to point fingers at someone else when he is blatantly at fault for his current predicament. Oops, what was that? Found guild of 27 of 31 counts of misconduct....INCLUDING lying in court and to officers of the court? Heh yep, totally the video game companies and the consumers.

Oddly enough his accusations at GP and Hal are unwarranted :P Dennis merely reported that EZK made a Jack Thompson disbarrment counter. GP and the ECA were not involved at all...and when is it illegal for EZK to make a fun counter for something true and will happen in a little under three weeks? :D

@GP: Think he'll ever clue in that the ECA means Entertainment CONSUMERS Association, and not the ESA? I mean he does accuse you of in league with the companies on a daily or weekly basis (for this I assume...) when you haven't exactly been pro-ESA for sometime now :P

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

...Wait what?  So because EZK, who is not part of the Florida Bar in any way shape or form, makes a firefox addon somehow this somehow proves that the video game industry, which EZK is also not a part of, is in charge of his disbarment?

What the fuck man?

Jack Thompson Cries Over Countdown to his Disbarment

Somebody call a Wahmbulance for the crybaby.

Jacky Boy's throwing conspiracy theories again like he's Oilver Stone. Ironic, considering that Stone beat a lawsuit a few years ago over the movie Natural Born Killers that was very similiar to the semi-current Alabama lawsuit Thompson was thrown off of. The same lawsuit that signaled the beginning of the end of Thompson's law career.

And what friends? The ones in Imaginationland? Bizarro World? You lost to the "stupid" enemies you've made because of your asinine antics over the years.

So it's you who's retarded, Jacky Boy.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Do you have PACER access?

Ain't it GREAT how he's getting his arse kicked?

I mean, in one case he's screaming how much the Florida Supreme Court has done wrong and how Tom Hall'sfiling was actually proving John Bruce's case... which he says while moving to dismiss that very Federal case he brought.

Oh, and I LOVE how he screams about how his Rights are violated because he, supposedly, can't choose his own attorney (because of the order preventing him from filing his own documents) BUT he demands that the Florida Bar be denied the Right to have the attorney THEY choose for themselves.

What a maroon!  :D

I can't wait to see what's next!

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

wow.

Also he wants to come back so we can laugh at him and deflate his fallacies on a daily basis? I confess that was kinda fun, I might almost miss it.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

As long as he doesn't lift his leg.... (my mother had a shihtzu years ago, he was always 'marking his territory' everywhere... was extremely neurotic.)

Hmm, and after the countdown I may change my sig (sorry sortableturnip, but if we're gonna erase any trace he ever existed, it's gotta go. ^^)

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Didn't he email that picture to you to begin with, or is he talking about the countdown?

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Oh no!  More empty threats!  Say it ain't so, Jack!

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Hey, didn't I suggest that idea earlier in a earileir post? :P

Nice either way. :D

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

You know, I was going to roll my eyes and just bitch about how gamers are just pushing it with this whole "lol jack is disbarred" thing... but then I rememebered that I was going to make a spray that gives Jack's disbarrment date. So i'll just let this go.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

I've got nothing but respect for EZK, but I hope you didn't waste too much time making this.  Jack isn't worth it anymore.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Nah, not to much time. It took maybe 4 hours, but most of that was learning to make FF extensions, something I wanted to do anyway but lacked motivation. This just gave me an excuse to do what I was putting off.

By the way, I fixed the timer bug, now it should show the proper amount of time left.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

While granted, he could fall off the face of the earth tomorrow and I wouldn't give a damn, I downloaded and installed it for the heck of it, nice job! I do wonder, does it do anything when D-day finally hits? :P

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Nothing spectacular at the moment. Just stops the count down a proclaims his disbarment. Might change something up in a next release though.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

But... what if he tried to go into politics after this?

He may be more dangerous with a 'dead' legal career than with a 'live' one, heh. We need a GTA mod that has a timer + a fireworks display when this is 'final'.

But, as a tribute - I will spend that entire evening playing GTA.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

He'll cause trouble still, that's for sure, but he can't do politics.  Being disbarred like this is a Guilty verdict - in the eyes of the law, he is officially a liar, a bully, unethical, and someone who has been found to be completely untrustworthy with no signs of remorse.

 

While that does apply to many politicians, we have an official court document certifying those attributes as undeniable facts - real politicians don't get caught!

 

How could he compete when his opponent could simply refute anything statements Jackie makes with "You have been found guilty of gross incompetence, unethical conduct, and repeatedly lying to government officials - why should we believe anything you say now?"

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Haha, awesome.

Re: Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment with Firefox Add-on

Check back in the next 2 days. There will be an update that fixes the timer so that it shows the right countdown for you. Right now it may not work right if you are ahead of eastern time.

Or, you know, you could just check the date, write it down or set an alarm for it in Windows/OS whateverthehell/Linux. Or in Outlook/Eudora/Gmail.

 

 

But that's just me. If you want an extension then go for it :) Kudos for taking the time to create it EZ.
