This whole Starbucks thing really blows my mind sometimes.  How 'we' collectively forced the kashrus agencies to go out and figure out what's ok there and what's not because 'everyone' decided to go there. I can't think of another store this has ever happened with.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

You could say the same thing about beer,  booze,  frozen fruit and vegetables,  and so much more.
'We' did no such thing.  'they'  do it on their own.  Same with the booze lists,  or the CRC's wonderful app,  the lists of things that don't require a hashgocha. 
They see themselves as communal service organizations,  and this is part of their service.  I,  for one,  am appreciative.

A yarei shamayim would make sure it's permissible before deciding to purchase, not vice versa.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I suppose so.  Though that is slightly different. And I wasn't saying it as a bad thing. It's just an interesting observation. I think it's great that they did what they did.

+1
It certainly wasn't implied that that's not the case. And a yarei shamayim can go around eating lots of things that don't necessarily have a hechsher.

Yes, there are people who would never do other things also permissible or never eat anything else that didn't have  a hechsher but somehow still ended up at Starbucks 'because everyone else was going too.'

I've met people (before all the hechsherim had their lists) who would drink at Starbucks but who would never dream of walking into another coffee shop.

It's just interesting how things in the community go like that.
