Am I suddenly marked as a child predator because google flagged my account for child porn and reported me to the authorities? And the email clearly indicates I wanted it, right? I mean, a child predator certainly would never get caught and have the forethought to say "it wasn't mine"

quote: The latter half of the sentence was just an example of where the NSA used said excuse, not a comparison to Google at all
quote: C'mon man.... I'm all for privacy, but Google is doing its best to weigh these issues and only alert authorities in cases of clear guilt. What do you expect it to do?
quote: Do you really think it won't raise a red flag to only be on the receiving end of the child pornography?
