Let's create a FAQ page to be published on our website

PB Pirate Bady Public Seen by 308

I hope everyone agrees with the idea of creating a FAQ page. A FAQ page helps everyone to get a better understanding of the Pirate ideas. It can also be used to clear many of the common doubts. Requesting everyone to contribute questions and answers here, which we can then add to the upcoming FAQ page on our website. It'll be better if the answers can be summarized into one or two paragraphs for better readability.

1) Why the name Pirates?
Ans) The word 'Pirate' can be redefined as "someone who shares something for the common good". This new definition contradicts the popular usage of the same word mainly used by the software, media and film industries in their campaigns against copyright infringement. This can help reappropriation of the word 'Pirate'. In sociology and cultural studies reappropriating a word means the cultural process of reassigning a word with positive meaning which was previously considered as negative.

2) Why is privacy important?
(inviting everyone to come up with a concise answer. for a detailed answer let's create a Statement on "Why Privacy matters/Why is Privacy important" instead)

3) Privacy and Transparency are opposite things. So isn't it contradicting that the Pirates are standing for both at the same time?
Ans) Pirates are demanding privacy in personal matters while transparency in public governance. Since both are separate it's not contradicting.
