The parent post said: "There is no way to prevent 3D printers and CNC mills from being manufactured."
A true but unhelpful statement. My point was to look at how printers, copiers, scanners, and even image editing software have been modified to deter counterfeiting:
It's not a stretch to imagine the same sort of restrictions being mandated for 3D printers and CNC machines.
Try copying a US $20 bill on any modern copier.

Oh how I wish I had mod points! +1
Dorff's next monthly bill was for $15,687.64, bringing his total outstanding debt to AT&T, including late fees, to $24,298.93. If he didn't pay by May 8, AT&T warned, his bill would rise to at least $24,786.16. Droff then called David Lazarus, business columnist for the LA Times, who got in touch with AT&T, who wasted little time in deciding it would waive the more than $24,000 in charges.
AT&T spokeshole Georgia Taylor claims Dorff's modem somehow had started dialing a long-distance number when it accessed AOL, and the per-minute charges went into orbit as he stayed connected for hours.
AT&T declined to answer the LA Times questions about why AT&T didn't spot the problem itself and proactively take steps to fix things? AT&T also declined to elaborate on whether AT&T's billing system is capable of spotting unusual charges and, if so, why it doesn't routinely do so.

It doesn't say what you think it says.
There's a significant difference: CP is alleged to have used a personal account "sometimes." HRC used personal email intentionally and exclusively.
It's a demonstration of arrogance, ignorance, and bad judgement that seriously calls into question her credentials to be the next POTUS.
Agreed. To me this is the most over-looked/under-discussed angle on this story: the extreme lack of judgement displayed in making this decision isn't a good sign for someone coyly begging us to give her more power.
This wasn't an accident; she very clearly and intentionally made a reckless choice in placing her own personal benefit over the welfare of the nation.
In the end, I think her calculation was that she could make this choice with no consequences for herself and, sadly, I think she will be correct.
And smoothing the skirts
AT&T also played a role with their brain dead CEO stomping around huffing and puffing in outrage that people would dare to use the bandwidth he sold them.
Had anyone been interested in solving the problem you describe it could have been done very easily: it's flat out fraud to sell me access to the entire Internet and then go behind my back to the sites I want to visit and demand a ransom for my traffic. If the ISPs were legally liable for that kind of bait-and-switch then the problem would quickly sort itself out.
Instead you've nearly guaranteed that you're going to get traffic prioritized in ways you don't like. The only difference is that now you have absolutely no recourse as the traffic shaping you fear will have been blessed by your well greased and totally captured government regulators. You know, for the children or the terrorists or something.
