    It just occured to me:
    DN makes no sense at this point! (well within the fictional boundaries of the manga)

    Let's assume there is a "fixed" date, when a person gets killed (like MIA by getting stabbed to death by stalker, or she getting killed by the police because of her "KIRA" doing) and a Shinigami would be killed, for altering the "fixed" date.
    Then Shinigami would be killed by default, if they kill anyone, since your life can influence so much (like causing traffic jams and thereby fatalities , soldiers etc) other lifes, that it is impossible to kill someone wihout alterting the "fixed" date of other persons.

    But Shinigami need to kill people in order to prolong their lifes!!!
    hence the "Eye for 50% from the rest of your life trade" and the "I get the rest ofy our life"

    It's the intent behind it interestingly enough that determines whether or not the shinigami dies. After all there are plenty of circumstances where a shinigami killing someone extends another person's life but doing it deliberately out of love is what is fatal. The reasons for which are long forgotten it seems.
    The house of death is now open and taking all requests.

    I think the rules are set up to keep Shinigami from being a "guardian angel" to a specific person. It's okay if they kill someone and it alters the lifespan of others, but if the shinigami specifically does it to save a person, they are showing favoritism.

    Also, a shinigami can eventually die naturally, they just all built up their lifespans so much that they don't care about using the deathnotes anymore, hence the boredom in the shinigami world. I'm not sure, but wasn't the stupid shinigami who Ryuk had stolen a deathnote from worried because it had been so long since he used his note and he needed to use it again to save himself from dying?

    ig the intent is the decisive factor, then REM would have been killed much sooner.
    And even a "protected" Human would die of old age sonner or later anyway.

    it's acting with the intent, not the intent itself, otherwise yes, Rem would have been dead earlier.

    Yes, the human would die eventually. And so in the long run it doesn't even matter. But if you look at it that way, what's the point of any rules?

    Maybe shinigami protecting humans led to problems in the shinigami world in the past. For whatever reason, the shinigami king made the punishment for this offense death, and now in the present the shinigami barely interact with the human world and the rule is long forgotten, so whatever the reason for the rule, it obviously did its job (but it also made the shinigami world boring). That's just guess-work though.

    Umm, "that girl" was Misa...
