Setting the Bar for Government Access to Have I Been Pwned

Over the last 4 years, I've onboarded 28 national government CERTs onto Have I Been Pwned (HIBP) and given them free and open access to APIs that enable them to query and monitor their gov domains. This doesn't give them access to any information they can't already access via the free public domain search feature, but it makes their lives easier. Much easier. As interest from govs has grown, it's caused me to ponder: who am I willing to give access to? Who am I unwilling to give access to? Those questions prompted a tweet earlier today: If I was to define metrics for which governments I accepted onto @haveibeenpwned, what should they look like? Human rights? Other? And as...
