Actually, the greatest pirate of all time, Ching Shih, protected the towns she forced to pay tribute, had a strict code of honor among her large cadre of pirate brethren, and put those that abused the innocent to the sword.

True. In fact the majority of the pirate community had a very democratic system and a strict code of honor. But the same could be said about some inner city gangs. Although not as prominent.

I've noticed that people who use the "consider the following" picture end up being a bunch of pseudo-intellectual morons.

Why did you use "actually?"

That still makes he brutal, violent, and merciless...
"forced to pay.." -- Brutal
"...to the sword" -- Violent
"Strict code" -- merciless

Sounds like a typical pirate to me and deserves no recognition of 'greatness' - Because pirates weren't great. They were and are douchebags.

Yes but the authority back then basically did the same things that you described. So dashgamer here, used the word "actually" because it was ironic that a pirate was doing good things.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

And her fleet was great enough to overpower empires at the time. That woman knew how to get **** done. I kind of admire her as a fascinating character, even though she was still a pirate

She actually retired, as well. She WON being a pirate!
