Does "independent" here mean "supported by private money rather than government money"?

- judge someone by something
- judge someone on something
I think that these two mean the same thing. Is the second one used only in American English?

You should not judge people by their appearance.

talk someone's ear off
to talk to someone endlessly; to bore someone with too much talk.
My aunt always talks my ear off when she comes to visit.
Stay away from Mr. Jones. He will talk your ear off if he gets a chance.


Do British English speakers say "talk someone's head off" instead?
