    Good riddance.

    We must stay ever-vigilant in case another Thompson-like rises up in his place.

    Someone stated that we shouldn't be celebrating this. That the end of someone's livelihood is nothing to smirk about. But I say someone who misuses his abilities and power for deranged vendettas needs to be taken down. If you saw a lunatic running down the street with a knife yelling some paranoid nonsense, you'd know that the police, the law, would step in. This case is no different.

    The end of his livelihood? Oh that is just precious.

    Apparently *someone* has never seen his talking appearances on Fox News. Or the fact that he wrote a book (a deal which he subsequently ruined after splitting from his publisher on account of the Left Behind books and game, so this man does a fine job ruining his own livelihood). If and when the lawyer thing falls through, this guy has plenty of potential to cash in as a citizen 'expert' on violence in media and continue railing against his imaginary demons.

    But before anybody feels sympathetic, understand the guy has made that livelihood on the back of frivolous litigation by harrassing others, and then spreading that around as much as possible. His antics aren't just stunts occurring within a vaccuum that make funny reading on the internet, he's wasted who-knows-how-much money of American companies, and more importantly tax payers, in trying to protect us from non existent threats that nobody asked about. He's contributed to congesting the judicial system with his BS over topics ranging from Janet Reno to very real violent crimes with very real effects on people's lives.

    And that's all in addition to the other less tangible effects of attempting to criminalize art against the first amendment, and generally representing the worst of his profession.

    Jack Thompson is so disbarred, he can't even play basketball because it's on a court.
