Honestly I cannot take seriously people that don't take themselves seriously.

I may have a laugh and enjoy a beer with them, but not consider them as viable 
options:

The main three reasons:
1.  I dislike "one issue" parties (green party, marijuana party, etc). As anyone 
elected will need to work on many issues, just one of them will be their 
platform.
2. The name of the party denotes mockery. Based on what I read, they are not for 
Piracy, but for advancement of "information laws". Again, the issues may be 
serious, but their approach is not. 
3. Did I mention "one issue" parties?

I am not only a content producer and consumer, I am also a parent, a driver, a 
home owner, etc...
