Any claim on any internet forum where membership in any group is asserted is, at best, highly suspicious. By extension, any experiential claim dependent upon the factuality of membership in said group is also, at best, highly suspicious.

Wouldn't that strategy work at least as well as it did in WWII?

I don't think the pirates have submarines or aircraft... yet.
