hotmail has been known to send a lot of spam. I hope someone takes control of hotmail domain, since microsoft is unable to police it. (Note that it has recently been brought down, by someone should have taken control of their domain when it was a serious problem).

The point is a free service being abused is expected. It is not as if noip encouraged abuse and were paid by abusers.

There will more consequences that you state here. Drive during peak hour traffic, you get a higher premium than the ones that leave early or dont drive in peak hour. Drive early morning, late night, higher premiums for you. "The device tracks your mileage, time of day drive, and number of hard brakes" - progressive snapshot.

Soon, the device will have gps which will give you a "higher discount". Drive through or around risker parts of the town, higher premiums for you.

The net effect is insurance companies dont even out risks, but just cherry pick the juicy customers, that are pretty much risk free. The rest either pay a very high insurance or go uninsured. Picking out juicy customers is not what insurance is supposed to be.

If they have the authority to detain you if you not divulge your password, for all practical purposes they can make you reveal your password. People that are motivated enough about their privacy and data, that they are willing to be detained is exceptionally rare.

By the same definition, all a court can do is hold you on contempt of court, if you refuse to divulge your password, you dont have to give the court your password too. Admittedly the court can hold you much longer than ICE and CBP, but it is just becomes a degree of pressure. They both are effective enough for pretty much everyone.

The TSA can never force you to give them your password (or copy data from your phone for the matter). CBP (Customs and Border Protection) always could and still can. Know your acronyms and rights folks, it can be very useful.

It obviously doesnt cover lying by law enforcement. But that is already a crime.

Nope, average american produces more CO2 than an average chinese person, but nope, an average american doesnt pollute more than average chinese person. SO2, NO2, soot (carbon particles) and other particulate matter are much more serious.

Also averages are misleading. An average artic (or antarctic) resident would populute more, than an american, it doesnt mean they dont get to complain about american pollution or chinese pollution.

Why should China, or any developing country, give up its own economic development

It shouldnt, and no one is asking it to. We are asking China to stop polluting though. I live in west coast, and a lot of our air pollution comes from China. It is not unresonable to ask China to stop. It doesnt even have to affect their economic development if done right.

Air pollution is really making us pay through the nose.
