Caring / avoiding harm, and equity/justice are universal morals (care about others, don't hurt them, and be just and equitable to others).
Humans and primates have these values ingrained in them. When people violate them, they feel guilty (sociopaths are pathological because they violate them without guilt).
Other universal morals, like group loyalty, are usually subordinate to these main two. That is, you should not harm lots of outsiders unfairly out of blind loyalty to your own group.
"Do unto others" is much too simple, but I think it's intended to suggest care/avoid harm and equity/justice.
FOIA and similar state laws generally do not require the government to CREATE data, such as an index like you describe.
Not true in my experience. I can plug my Thunderbolt hard drive into my MacBook Pro and Time Machine is done in just a few minutes; even when I've got about 30 GB of new photos on the laptop and haven't run the backup in over a week. It is very fast
Here is the main place to go for all Tomato development, all current developers are active here:
Last year I upgraded from a WRT54GL with original Tomato to an Asus RT-N16 running Toastman's build. Got 365 days of rock solid stability before upgrading to a newer build with VLANs and Multi-SSD.
In my mind the RT-N16 has replaced the WRT54GL as the standard open source router for new installs.
Those mistakes I think any judge has made are due to arbitrary personal bias, not bribes or even systemic bias. The exception might be bias in favor of attorney-defendants, or protecting the system.
Judicial reform appeals to me, but the immediate problem is where do you get "better" judges? You would have to offer more pay and/or a reduced workload, which means an increase in taxes (virtually if not literally impossible). Our current judges reflect our current society, they have merit but also flaws. They care and do their best, but some are misguided. I am not happy with some of them, but respect others very much.

However even your quote doesn't contain any language that attempts to assert copyright or ownership of fan photography/video.
Major League Baseball and some of the NFL franchises assert ownership of anything documented at their games.
Not true, I'm a sports photographer and MLB/NFL does not own the copyright of images I take at their games. Now they do restrict usage as part of the credential agreement, but that doesn't give them ownership or any rights to use the images themselves.
Professional testing has shown that the cameras I currently use (Canon EOS 1D Mark IV) top out around 66 MB/s when writing to the fastest CF cards.
But in-camera speed is only half of what matters. As a photojournalist and sports photographer who works on tight deadlines most days, I also have to consider how fast I can download the images off the CF cards onto my computer for editing. With the right card reader you can download at up to 97 MB/s.
This is why I always use the fastest cards I can, currently Sandisk Extreme Pro 90 MB/s, because even though the camera can't take advantage of that extra speed it will definitely save me time when it comes to editing.
For people not on a time crunch or those who always download to their computer by plugging their camera in with a USB cord it is probably wise to save money and not buy the fastest cards out there.
I would be willing to "opt in". Anyone else who opts-in (allowing me to know their basic info on sight) can also know mine.
I would be OK with a stranger approaching me to ask for help/to discuss something I have experience in. Others might know to not to bother me (maybe put "no solicitors" in my basic info).
The only obvious downside, to me, would be if others know my basic personal info, and I don't know that they know it, and I do not know theirs.
I did this with Comcast just this week actually. They dropped my bill (for "triple play" cable/phone/internet) by $60 per month. It is still too expensive, but more reasonable now and I'm not quite ready to drop TV completely. (Haven't convinced the wife yet and don't have time to setup a media server/sick beard/etc.)
I used the online chat and I wish I would have done it sooner, was pretty simple.
Agreed. Any critics should take their camera and fly to the next hot spot and take their own photos...nothing to stop you, other than not wanting to risk your own blood and treasure, and probably come home empty handed because it's damn hard work, including getting access to timely shots.
Would you like pictures of the rebels when they grab Gaddafi? It would make a great photo. Should you be a cold, dismissive jerk to the rebels and then ask them to take you with when they go to grab him?
When a photographer alters or stages their photos, they get fired. They compete for who gets access to the most timely, dangerous, subjects. War photographers DIE doing their job. Tim Hetherington (who directed the documentary "Restrepo") was killed in Libya recently. Kevin Carter, famous for the famine photo of starving toddler with a vulture landed nearby, committed suicide at age 33, leaving a note that said:
"I am depressed
A convoy of journalist-observers with a candidate en route to register for an election was massacred by the local warlord in the Philippines in 2009. The details are despicable. The Magindanao victims able to be identified are:
Alejandro "Bong" Reblando
Napoleon “Nap” Salaysay
Bartolome “Bart” Maravilla
Gina Dela Cruz
McDelbert "Macmac" Arriola
Santos "Jun" Gatchalian
Archie Ace David
Fernanado "Ferdz" Mendoza
To deride conflict photographers takes a lot of nerve if you haven't done it yourself.
