Some little time after I started using the Internet there was a new search engine called Altavista. It was very good, but it could not compete with a newer one called Google, so they had to stop using the feature that I liked the most, the "Near" keyword, probably because it was slowing their engine.

Just don't search anything you wouldn't want people knowing you searched and you'll be fine.

How many bureaucrats are there to go through these millions of pieces of information?
Needle in a haystack, seriously. Unless you're actually up to no good and they have you in their sights on some prior suspicion or other, how are they going to track you, amongst all the other millions of needles?
