I'm more concerned about the next answer:

He mixes what we are doing (politics) and what the pirate bay does 
(filesharing with money involved). I'm sure he does this intentionally 
and that pisses me off. By denying us to stand up for better laws, he 
actually questions freedom of speech and democracy in general.
