comment Do Nepalese authorities care about Everest climb fairness?
My answer was accepted, therefore it sticks to the top. If you have limited time, I'd urge you to skip it and read Ben Crowell's answer instead. It's the more interesting answer.

I don't think anyone cares how people spend their private time and money, however Mountain Everest is not anyone's private backyard, and climbing it is certainly not a private activity.

comment Why SOME Israeli groups are so impolite and what to do?
This is an anecdote, but I think it's kind of relevant. I was talking with the manager of a hostel I was staying in Amsterdam in 2001, and at some point she revealed her immense hatred of Greeks. She has had tons of unpleasant experiences with Greeks over the years, to the point that she no longer accepted travelers from Greece in her hostel. I had flown in from the UK, with a bunch of English friends and she had assumed I was English (at that time I was living in Cambridge for three years, so I had started to pick up the accent). I only told her I was Greek when we where leaving... :)
