Oddly enough, my view of go is kind of the opposite - Evan suspects it's written by coders who are sick of other people being sloppy, so they've made everything super strict. That seems to be true of the trivialities (formatting, lints, unused imports etc), but I find the language itself to be painfully sloppy. e.g. the frustrating lack of rigor around nullable values, leading to idiomatic code which can't tell the difference between a missing string and an empty string.
It also has a Result type, which is like Either but specifically for errors. You cannot ignore a Result type, even if the "success" value is unit/void. Paired with the try! macro, error handling in rust is mandatory, explicit and still quite terse.

..in which "unilateral disarmament" and "flying blind" refer to the way our (and most of the world's) law enforcement has worked up until now.
Oh, and according to Germany, "flying with their eyes open" (so to speak) has had no detectable impact on crime fighting, and is unconstitutional to boot.
I think we'll be better off giving up our freedom: it's a small price to pay for freedom!
Of course it has.
"We will continue to preserve net neutrality but we're talking about the possibility ... [of offering] a premium service that we as a network provider can ensure to an [over-the-top] provider if they pay for that premium service"
That's... literally the opposite of net neutrality.
It is a bit hypocritical that Netflix is quota-free on Optus and elsewhere, though, deals which Netflix "regrets" (immediately after securing the benefits).
