The larger percentage of the exit nodes a single organisation controls the better chance they have to seeing all the packets from any given user.
Becoming an Internet standard would dramatically increase the number of exit nodes making it harder for a single entity to control a decent proportion of them, although the basic attack would still work with enough resources.
None of this is to suggest that they always wear white hats, or that I'm not deeply concerned with the revelations about their domestic activities
But thats the point isn't? everything they have touched is now suspect.
Everything single thing they have changed has to be viewed as an attempt to insert a trojan. Everything single thing they have recommended has to be viewed as an attempt to limit the effectiveness of security systems to something which the NSA knows they can break one way or another.

(I doubt any weed could evolve to be immune to getting cut or pulled).
The robot has to recognise the plant as a weed somehow, any weed which doesn't look enough like a weed, or even better looks like the desired crop won't be pulled and that will provide natural selection for the weeds to mimic other plants.
If they think that omitting that feature will mean more games sales, they are mistaken.

You can not possibly be so stupid as to think that the GP actually believe hip replacements fall from the sky, you know perfectly well that the GP means free at the point of delivery.
