Anytime you have a fast feedback loop like this, you're going to be getting a lot of noise and a fair amount of disinformation.

- what if every medium sized website (in terms of traffic: 1k pageviews per day), injected background ajax calls for google queries about any number of sensitive issues topics?
- what if those same websites used this link or similar for other major services in ajax calls/or iframe with click jacking to send emails on behalf of people which included sensitive information?
I wonder what that topology would look like…
What about for the emails?
