Maybe you missed it the first time: there is no US extradition request for Julian Assange

Look up "extraordinary rendition" for the way at least one person has been taken out of Sweden by US agencies.

You are making the mistake of looking at this in terms of criminal law instead of the political/quasi-military situation that it actually is. Assenge is a political problem to be removed by extra-judicial means and not just a criminal that can be dealt with over time by an established process.

True - North showed us what treason was with giving those anti-tank missiles to Hezbolla and selling a lot of stuff to Iran.
Whistleblowing - now that's pathetic in the treason stakes, not like in the old days when we had traitors that would hand over serious weapons, paid for by the taxpayer, to people that had killed over a hundred US Marines less than a year before and wanted to kill more Americans. They don't make traitors like they used to.

I've got real confusion instead - WTF is "outright deadnaming"?

Also this place makes about as much sense as a venue to discuss sexuality of any kind as a locker room full of twelve year old boys. Most will say a lot without actually knowing anything related to the topic at all, and anything seen as being outside of the norm will be mercilessly insulted.

I'm not sure how I feel about this

Think of how David Petraeus did the same thing for nothing but the motive of wanting to fuck a reporter and how he got away with nothing but a slap on the wrist. That disproportionate punishment should make it easier to sort out your feelings even if you think Manning is guilty as hell. The sentence Manning received was unjust.

And should we make it illegal to listen to anything that isn't RDS compliant? Will we start making phones RDS complaint, so if someone is using a phone (legally hands-free, or illegally hands-on) the calls will be interrupted as well?

How about people like me that don't even hook up the FM antenna? My "radio" is used primarily as a display for the rear camera, and secondarily for music for long trips, through bluetooth or USB. Am I now an illegal? Does it matter that I drive a special-edition car that has no soundproofing, and thinnner window glass, making the inside about as transparent to outside sounds as a "regular" car with the windows down? (noise being why I never use the radio in town, it's just so hard to hear)
