Re: Locking down malicious actions closer to the source
This is a messy area indeed - cleaner but whose idea of clean is the one that applies.   And who polices that clean environment (who makes that decision based upon what criteria).   We are getting close to State and One thought for all.  i believe it should be a wide open Dodge City for free speech with all the hell that embraces.  The price of a free internet.  There are always bad users and actors, always will be.   You cannot legislate stupidity but it is rampant.  (See Congress LOL).  Slippery slope indeed.

Locking down malicious actions closer to the source
I agree we need "dummy-proof" security, however, be careful to not make it harder for truth about what's going on to get sent out of countries and organizations that want to rigidly control the flow of information. (And, there's no such thing as foolproof, because fools are so ingenious.)
