radio control always land safely and without damage.

where "safely" means "unable to transmit footage of potentially horrific things that make government look bad".

and "without damage" means "more evidence to gather to aid in rounding up the pilot".

Look at it this way: "safely" does not mean properly shielded so the police operator doesn't have a gigantically increased chance of getting brain cancer.

Shouldn't the level of quality be up to the customer?

So, require everyone to take the language test but not to "pass" it. Just let their Uber profile shows their score so potential riders can decide if they want to have to talk loudly and wave their arms a lot in exchange for a discount?

Can you explain how the CEO of Netflix is "peer reviewed literature" from today? Which article are all you people all responding to, exactly?
