    I don't think the search engine companies or ISPs would be very thrilled with the idea of spurious "noise searches" automatically generated to obfuscate your manual searches. Real bandwidth and search engine cycles would be used up.

    I suppose it is akin to spam, sending millions of junk emails.

    The internet sure is an enabling technology for keeping track of what people are doing.
