Chess can be played in 500 years same as we play it today. So can football, baseball, any sport you can think of.

Except car racing, which is constantly evolving, just like computer games (and has a lot more common with e-sports than chess or football). It, however, isn't an olympic sport, and I think it shouldn't be (even though I'm a big fan of it) since that would force the car racing to submit into certain cliches, removing the charm that comes from every track and car being different.

Racing cars get replaced my more modern version and so do competitive video games, but the main premise won't change much for as long as it has clear and attractive goals. Even CS:GO has the same basic rules as the original CounterStrike that got released 20 years ago.

... it's a disaster area... get real. I'm sure hey couldn't care less about your illegal downloads at such moments.

They won't care right now, but things might change once everything settles. Even war crimes rarely get processed during wars, usually after them.
Will I be held responsible if someone uses my open WiFi network to download child porn? Weirder stuff could've happened.

It's how gamers think too. If it works for him then the fault must lie with the other person's system. No one wants to admit that it worked for them because they were lucky.

Confirming. I once complained that a certain game isn't compatibile with my graphics card on Steam forums and most replies consisted of rude and immature trolling.

You could have LastPass remember your e-mail and autofill it for you when it prompts you for the master password. A phishing site typically won't know your e-mail, unless they asked you for it (as a part of registration process, for example). I suggest using different e-mail than the one you use for your LastPass Account for every site that requires a password. If you're on Gmail adding "+[domainname]" to your Gmail username is enough, since Gmail ignores everything after a plus sign.
