Jack Thompson Invited to Debate

Recommended Posts

saltinespike

 

I, Ryan Ficken, would like to give you a personal invite to GTAForums' "Debates & Discussion" section, which can be found in the link below. I believe you will find yourself quite challenged, and it should be a treat for all involved. Anyways, I hope you take my offer seriously - you should not be bashed, and you have every right to leave if you are bashed. This is not a joke. Those at GTAForums will be interested in this event. Perhaps we can even arrange a private debate, for fear of immature children only interested in being rude.

 

Please reply with your answer to this proposition, so that we can differentiate you from any person pretending to be you. Thank you very much for reading, Jack Thompson. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. The link to the Debate section of GTAForums is http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showforum=77. Hope to see you there!

 

Ryan Ficken, (***) ***-****, [email protected]

 

I figure being polite was the best way to go about this, as he may be more inclined to come. I got his e-mail from a Kotaku Report.

 

I apologize if this is a waste of your time, but I figured it was worth a try, since he challenged Samuel L. -- haha. The *s are my phone number. Why did I bother putting it in there? I don't know, to appear more professional and legitimate. Any thoughts?

Ah, once again you do not listen. I came to you offering a professional debate and you figure that since a bunch of GTA fans are watching, you'll be flamed. Well, good luck on your anti-gaming crusade. I'm interestied to know what happens in your upcoming court case. Sadly, I thought more of you. I suppose I will join in with the sea of gamers who hate you. Have a good day.

What a stereotypical f*ck. That's exactly what I thought he'd do, say we'd flame him, or not even get back to you on it. Just because we play GTA doesn't mean we'll flame him.

Oh well.

Merriam Webster:

 

Main Entry:

1de·bate 

Pronunciation:

\di-ˈbāt, dē-\

Function:

noun

Date:

13th century

: a contention by words or arguments: as a: the formal discussion of a motion before a deliberative body according to the rules of parliamentary procedure b: a regulated discussion of a proposition between two matched sides

 

Dictionary.com:

 

de·bate      /dɪˈbeɪt/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[di-beyt] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation noun, verb, -bat·ed, -bat·ing.

 

–noun 1. a discussion, as of a public question in an assembly, involving opposing viewpoints: a debate in the Senate on farm price supports. 

2. a formal contest in which the affirmative and negative sides of a proposition are advocated by opposing speakers. 

3. deliberation; consideration. 

4. Archaic. strife; contention.

 

 

Compact Oxford English Dictionary:

 

a formal discussion in a public meeting or legislature, in which opposing arguments are presented. 2 an argument.

 

---

 

I can continue serching for definitions, but none of them say anything about the contention being face to face. I cannot force you to do it, but do not frame your reasoning on the definition of debate. Please stop euphemizing your purpose in rejecting the offer. Perhaps you are the one who needs to buy a dictionary.

"in an assembly," moron.  I don't debate people anonymously in the ether of the Internet.  I said no.  You send me one more email about anything and you'll be sorry.

A forum is an assembly, moron. Oops, did I just send you one more email? I'm not feeling very sorry. Are you planning to sue me? On what account, harrassment? You're a joke of an attorney, and most of the nation laughs at you. Have it your way though, Jackie Boy. Like I said, no one can force you. Yet here you talk, challenging me to email you back, when you damn well know the mature way to end it would be to not reply at all. You won't get a rise out of me, because I'm right, and you're wrong. You don't have to write back; just leave me the victor in this little engagement.

Hehehe...if this is true. Not that I doubt you, but more hopefully he does not handle his own emails. Also, he only chose one definition that suited his position...not the overall idea that was presented in the majority. Tis tis.

Indeed. That just nails his coffin of not being a real attorney. Attorneys, lawyers, etc. are supposed to have dickwad CLEAN grammar and spelling.

haha, I was about to make that very same comment.

 

I must say, I'm not surprised at his response, given his status, I'm sure he gets bombarded with 'ur a dum prik gta is wel gud n im nt a killa' e-mails all the time. Can't blame the guy for being defensive...

 

However, I think it's extremly unprofessional and immature to reply in offensive manner. Personally, I find his views moronic, but I've always respected him for pursuing his beliefs. However, calling you a moron, for no reason and threatening you? That's pathetic.

 

Although, I do see the sending him the e-mail as a pointless venture. His mind is clearly set, I doubt any one of us could change his mind.

Oh, for those interested, we wrapped it all up with him saying "Big Mistake. Gotcha." and me replying "I'm terrified." May or may not recieve another email from him. Interesting conversation, though.

Haha, this is pretty funny. Too bad he didn't join the forums and debate, it would have been very interesting. But still, I think you definitely came out on top in your little debate via email saltinespike.

 

He's such a tard.

Honestly, from a legal point of view, what can he actually do?

 

Were he a hacker, or some kind of thug, there may be a reason to be remotely afraid (since he could kick your ass or haxor you or something) but on a legal level there is nothing he could do. Harassment wouldn't pan out, since you didn't get 'aggressive' until he called you a moron.

 

I must wonder, where did you get thay E-mail? Sure it isn't actually someon pulling your/ chain? i.e. some random person who likes to have arguments or something and so has lied claiming he's Jack Thompson.

 

Also, EmSixTeen that was a pretty interesting read to see that's where the whole Sims thing came from. Although, I am slightly fearful as to the credibilty of that account, how can we be sure he didn't make that up?

That is illspirit's website who is an administrator of these forums. I highly doubt he would make that up.

Read the original post and you'll understand where I got the email. His address and phone number are placed in there. Quite convincing, if you ask me.

 

Thank you, Em. I'm reading everything as we speak. Jack Thompson IS a fast one to reply, I've noticed.

Would of been nice if he would of joined and debated, though. There's no reason we'd flame him unless he got aggressive on us.

Lol @ 666.

 

I've read a bunch of emails to Jack Thompson (or at least they're claimed to be from him) and it seems like he always gives the same generic response of rejection to any form of confrontation with the gaming community. Hmm...
