"I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
- Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)

A) make the JUDGEMENT that the delivery would bounce before the stumps
B) not make the JUDGDEMENT whether the delivery would deviate significantly to miss or not because such judgements can't be made by umpires and therefore give the batsman benefit of doubt

I think fulltosses cannot be presupposed to spin while giving LBWs just because the bowler is a spinner. That's relying on a priori assumptions, and while it probably will turn on pitching (wherever that may be), one can only go with the evidence in play during that particular delivery.
Least controversial? Remember Ian Chappell once raising this point while commentating, there must be some others too. However, it hasn't been as controversial as Mika and Rakhi Sawant's kiss I agree.
Easiest to judge? The opposite, because such cases can't be judged with any accuracy.
