However, considering that federal prosecutors, including Range, are bound by instructions from the ministry of justice (i.e. the government), neither the NSA nor, by extension, the BND or any other of the foreign NSA appendages have to worry about anything in that regard. If that ever changes, it's because the then-current government changes their mind, not because of laws or any nonsense like that.
To defeat rainbow tables, I salt that password in a way I don't have to memorize but can easily deduce, for example with the site I'm using the password on. Examples: ReallyHardPasswordSlashdot, ReallyHardPasswordGoogle, ReallyHardPasswordSteam, etc. They all are different and not reusable, their hashes are different, they are (hopefully) long enough to be too long for rainbow tables

Regarding cheating: Yes, because real sports, especially the professional/competitive level, is known to be free of cheaters.
Arguably, eSports cheaters are much easier to catch because by definition, everything is controlled by a computer and most cheaters leave some sort of trace that can be tracked. I'm pretty sure that you will find no physical sport that has as strict an enforcement of anti-cheating rules as even the most lenient/lazy competitive eSports games. Especially at the highest level of play, during tournaments where competitors are physically present, with hardware provided by and players under observation of judges, cheating is practically impossible. Many physical sports would be better off if their tournaments had the same ratio of cheating as eSports.
As for your claim about lives saved vs. deaths caused: Citation needed. The secret police forces of Nazi Germany, Stasi Germany, Soviet Russia, and countless other dictatorships were certainly not in the business of saving lives. The intelligence agencies of the US and her allied governments are certainly not in the business of saving lives either. They are in the business of target selection for the US drone wars.
