False analogy. There's a huge difference between a personal assistant, who by definition *I* know personally, and a faceless business entity who I know not at all (read adversarial entity) scraping 'enough' information about me to presume it knows me sufficiently to second guess what I want and give me that instead of what I requested. Truthfully, why on earth would I trust such an entity?

That's the problem with hypotheticals. They don't reflect the reality we live in.

I notice you don't provide any stats to back up that bland assertion. The connection of a rape charge (even obliquely) is sufficient to ruin your life. A lot of the damage is done *prior* to being vindicated. Does the innocent party get reimbursed for the loss of time/freedom/property/job/friends/acquaintences? No. It's gone.
