My god what nuts!! NYC is apparently the home of the "alt-left" Totalitarian government?? We have totalitarianism on two sides..of two flavors...the wacky right wing nuts and the insane and overcontrolling left wing alt left bullies who want to control what you do with your bedroom.
They want to make hosts' addresses public?? And then I suppose they will say the line forms here and start handing out Molotov Cocktails to the anti-Airbnb crowd so they can start fire bombing your houses?
Talk about how to vilify people.
"Forcing New Yorkers to publish their addresses online for anyone to see, especially while they are on vacation or visiting family, will put thousands of lives at risk," an Airbnb spokesman stated Tuesday. "This is a dangerous bill, and we trust lawmakers will see this for exactly what it is: another favor for the hotel industry sponsored by their favorite taskmaster."
In the US, case precedent is that it's illegal for governments to go on "fishing expeditions" and demand vast amounts of data so that they can sift through it and try to find some crimes and violations in there. Governments are only allowed to subpoena for data when they have evidence to suggest a violation/crime has occurred, Otherwise they can butt the f#&k out.
I saw that requirement today on a helpfile for European business hosts and thought it would be crazy to do that, even if I manage the account for an association. Imagine al Ne how many people will just show up to avoid fees and propose a deal.
