As a card carrying member of the American Civil Liberties Union, I have to condemn the flippant use of pirate jargon on this site. Today's pirates face unimaginable prejudice based on the myths and folklore that stems from certain notorious pirates that lived many decades ago. While the Modern Pirate still enjoys a good plunder and pillage here and there, we should be reaching out to them rather then ridiculing them. We are currently suing East Carolina University and the Pittsburgh Pirates in an effort to have their names changed to something more acceptable -- you know, Redskins or something like that. I'm urging all of you to please cease and desist from torturing these people with your continued slurs and allow them to go out and torture others in peace and with their hook held high.
Sincerely, Mr. Edward Teach, Jr. PhD.
