I can only assume the drones will be fitted with a standard log splitter attachment to remove those pesky doors...

I think you'll find that the majority of crime involves traditional currencies. Should we ban those? No.
I get the energy wastage argument against PoW blockchains, but your stated view here is very outdated. (In fact, blockchain generally improves transparency)
For example, the Swiss government has developed an app ( https://profila.com ) to allow users to maintain ownership of their personal data on the Cardano blockchain (not a proof of work network - https://cardano.org/).
Shame all these thumb down brain washed folks are all missing out on this next part of the digital revolution; consuming electricity is a short sighted argument against the market disruption this brings. You can always generate more electricity and do so in a lower carbon fashion. That argument against bitcoin is just the old financial powers trying to suppress this huge change which they fear. (And you have fallen for it, open your eyes)
Just to get an idea of adoption... https://map.bitcoin.com
If you try to regulate P2P, you will fail. That's the point of decentralisation. It will just move to Africa or Australia or wherever else. The time any country may spend trying to regulate this stuff is totally wasted.
Move on and make use of it, adopt this incredible technology... or bury your head in the sand.
Define "massive waste"…… opening with such a broad, I'll defined statement is a guarantee of a sprawling, broad thread of people talking across each other.
Tron has been running dpos for years...ETH is moving to pos because it's significantly more energy efficient... Both huge networks with it in their best interest to be energy efficient. Dyor before spouting drivel please
"And if MY code relies on something that can be updated by someone OUTSIDE OF MY CONTROL, then it NEEDS A RE-WRITE to AVOID that."
Wow, you maintain your own OS?
Seriously though, the only calls that you'll be experiencing are from new devs tearing their hair out and wondering why they're having to deal with your home brew nonsense when it could have been done better, more reliably and in less time with a well researched library choice.
Um, that's awful advice! (and yes, its actually very hard!)
How likely is it that Joe Bloggs will successfully mitigate formatting/injection/overflow attacks by rolling their own parser? (The answer is ZERO!) And yes, csv is vulnerable to macro injection attacks.
I would never attempt this - and I've been coding professionally for twenty years, and over 30 years in total.
