Thompson has described the proliferation of games by Sony, a Japanese company, as "Pearl Harbor 2.

"Murder simulators are not constitutionally protected speech. They're not even speech. They're dangerous physical appliances that teach a kid how to kill efficiently and to love it,"

Disbarred? What does that mean? Although I have to say, it sounds good! He's a complete tosser! I've never heard of someone who is as anti-gaming as this idiot is.

Disbarred means he cannot legally represent anyone, therefore he isnt a lawyer any more.

He was the lawyer who basically blamed video games for every problem in humanity. He was always attacking them and it's good to see he isn't a threat anymore
