Subtle distinction, this is not an article in The Economist but a blog hosted on their site. I find the quality of the articles quite a bit better than their blogs.

If the honeychecker is compromised you are no worse off than without a honeychecker (unless it lulls you into a false sense of security) but as long as it's not hacked it adds detectability. Not sure it's worth the effort but it's an interesting idea.

That's interesting, I've had the opposite experience, so I'm guessing it's a perception issue. I'm from Buenos Aires and currently live in New York, both loud cities. I find Argentine tourists around here are especially loud. Maybe I'm tuned to pick up my own accent, or maybe tourists are louder than locals? (the excitement of the new?) Or maybe, as you point out, we just don't notice the quiet ones and assume they are locals...

There's an interesting article on lesswrong about efficient charity. It's not really about the expense ratios but the impact of the donation. http://lesswrong.com/lw/3gj/efficient_charity_do_unto_others...

Thanks for this, I should have searched before posting.
