What it does mean is if picked up on by let's say an automated computer system you might get flagged and a human will then decide weather or not to investigate you or not, which aside from some potentially embarrassing privacy issues which no one is really a fan of, it really doesn't matter unless you are a kook, personally I really don't mind so much if some spook checks out my computer because I have technology interests, I love these subjects, mostly because what the military builds has future implications for civilian life down the road and for investment reasons if I ever have any money lol or just planning my future it's good to know these things. But you know what, some spook can see my porn stash lol if it stops some nut from blowing up a building or worse, after all I might have the crap luck of being in that building, they don't care about my daily life rofl, i'm not running for office where it can be used against me, if some computer system picks me up for talking about chemistry or hardware or whatever, well Good, some other jerk talking about the same thing might be cooking up Ricin in his moms basement, sadly people of that nature have actually been on this site before.
Bottom line, if your actually not the droids they are looking for you have nothing to worry about.
