Penny Arcade Donates the $10,000 that Jack Thompson promised.


It was only a matter of time until a mod team took Jack Thompson's disgusting revenge fantasy and made it flesh - and, just as I suggested, it was deemed insufficient. We're going to be the men you're not. We've just made the donation you never would, and never meant to. Ten thousand dollars' worth. And we made it in your name."
-Tycho

This, Mr. Thompson, is what the videogame world, nay human existence, is truly about.

  • I saw that after getting out of class, and I must say, bravo.

    Ten thousand dollars. Out of Tycho and Gabe's pocket. No charity drive or anything. That's what class is truly all about.

    I am somewhat afraid of what Thompson's reply will be, if anything. On the other hand, he could say something so out of whack that he loses all legitimacy in the public eye, and not just the eyes of gamers. One can only hope.

    The man is a disgrace. We all knew your piece was a horrible imitation of Swift's "A modest proposal", but none of us were prepared for you to pull an offer to charity when someone called your bluff.
