I said something like this at K5, long ago when I still gave a damn. "If you have 12 trolls in 1,000 users, you barely notice them. If you have 12 trolls in 20 users, you DO notice them!".

Paywalls lower the membership. They don't necessarily lower the troll population, and judging by K5, it only increases their percentage.

a human operator won't even be required for safe operation; only to provide instructions about where to go.

I dunno, but letting humans decide where an autonomous vehicle should go, might still be a recipe for unsafe operation...

I live in the bad part of town! I could see entering my home location and the car saying "I can't let you do that, Dave".

Why do we want intelligent terminals when there are so many stupid users?
