+ - Data miners beware! AKA: The sheep revolt!

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Tired of being tracked, profiled, and/or spoon fed info because of your latest search or facebook like?

We need some sharp programmers to create a 'background' process/plug-in which will submit fake search/likes/tweets etc. to mess with the profiling of all our online actions.

Imagine the impact if [insert current pariah] had to deal with 20% randomised data? 50% randomised data? Hell, it could even be a TOR-like online anonymity system. Something where you can play WoW as yourself but your search for 'midget porn' is buried in the noise of a million other user's randomised searches."
