OK, I'll bite. 1. Shared Information: As has been stated by Free Software Advocates, Philosophers, and many others before us, Information wants to be free. 2. You won't belive your teacher, but you will belive the teacher's student: Basically, disdain for the 'authority figure' in your life. Here, you can belive it, or not belive it. If it works for others, it may for you, also. And there is proof (most of the time) that it has been done by someone else, not just words without validation. 3. Learning something new without the pretense of learning: We learn what interests us, or we learn what we want to know, unlike State-run and mandated schools. 4. Shared Knowlege: Learn together, live together. It's one planet, after all 5. Self-worth: We learn, and we have knowlege to share. We share knowlege and are recognized for it. This recognition makes us feel good, and is our way of helping others who help themselves. Win-Win. As always, YMMV.

I believe this is a retorical question, because the definition of a retorical question is a question which does not need answering, because the answer is obvious. The answer in this case would be: Just because it is.
