FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Jack Thompson Makes A New Enemy

Posted on Thursday, April 16 @ 17:48:20 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
Really? Jack is back? Now that he's disbarred and can't work as a lawyer, where is this dude getting his money?

Either way, email is free, and o'l Jack sends a lot of it. To much, maybe, because it finally pissed off a previous supporter, Utah State Senate President Michael Waddoups (R). This was the guy who helped pass Utah's anti-video game law (which was vetoed by the governor).

The final straw was apparently a mail that contained a screenshot of a lapdance in GTA IV. Waddoups sent back several requests to Thompson asking him to stop mailing him, culminating in the following:

I asked you before to remove me from your mailing list. I supported your bill but because of the harassment will not again. If I am not removed I will turn you over to the AG [Attorney General] for legal action.

Way to make friends there, Jack. You just scored one for the other side. Jack's response? Yep you guessed it - more mail. This time to the entire Utah legislature, including the lapdance pic.

Waddoups has confirmed to the Salt Lake Tribune that he plans to seek legal action against Thompson under the federal CAN-SPAM act.

Might I also suggest trying a plain-old harassment charge? [Via GamePolitics]
