  • I highly doubt this would lead to false accusations, especially if such "shadowy agencies" know of the issues with the matching algorithms, but I'm curious to see if anyone finds that they're being followed or looked into with more scrutiny than the average Internet user as a result of it.

    Granted, someone doing the spying would have to royally slip up before the target suspect would find out...
