That's One Way To Go About It

If you've got a gripe with a company, buy stock in the company so you can attend stockholder meetings and wreak a little havoc. That's exactly what Jack Thompson did:

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. Jack Thompson has purchased shares in Take-Two interactive - otherwise known as the publisher behind the Grand Theft Auto series of games. So has JT suddenly become a financial supporter of the company he's long campaigned against? Not a chance. JT has purchased stock in the company in order that he might attend Take-Two's shareholder meetings and face up to the company's CEO, Paul Eibeler.
I guess if you've got money to blow, this is one way to make your point. I'd love to be at that stock holder meeting -- the guy's going to get beaten senseless.
