So what you're saying is, nothing happened. Cell phone use (talking and texting) has skyrocketed over the last decade. The accident rates have not risen in correlation with it. People are going to be distracted while driving, regardless of the distraction. If someone is at fault in an accident, the cause of their distraction should not be the issue; they are responsible whether they were texting or eating a hamburger or talking to the person next to them. The penalties should be the same as well without regard to the actual distraction.

There's also cultural influence to consider. English being known throughout the world is more a result of Hollywood/The Internet coming out of the US than it is old British Imperialism (assuming you don't count the fact that America itself exists as a result of that). I don't think Britain is interested in being a world power again, but if they want to, increasing the influence of their culture over the rest of the world is an important part of it.

The whole thread in which I was replying to has clearly stretched from 1% of the hosts, to 1% of competition and now to 1% of market share with your previous post. I am just bringing it back around to remind people that we are talking about 1% of the Air BNB hosts not 1% of all the hotels (legal and less than legal).
