AOL searches Flutterby

Hmmm... I'm not sure if this says more about Flutterby, or about AOL users, but my Dad forwarded AOL Psycho's analysis of, I guess, searches by AOL users that ended up at Flutterby.com.

But we have INTELLIGENT conversations about such topics, don't we? I am fighting the urge to include various words in this post that would trigger more such indexing.

Note that the results don't even strip out the %20's and convert to spaces well.

Add legal BS like this news.com article about FBI agents:

The FBI has recently adopted a novel investigative technique: posting hyperlinks that purport to be illegal videos of minors having sex, and then raiding the homes of anyone willing to click on them.

The article's pretty detailed, and while the guy they discuss in the story is probably guilty, I really don't like identifying people for a subsequent search warrant strictly from a link click, even one as explicit as those.

We will all have to be more careful online about what we choose to click on, the data collected, and then inferred from those searches and links.
