Specifically. What is so bad about THIS specific thing?
Because Internet searches can be used for a variety of things. You may have a genuine interest in something like child pornography, due to a recent event in the news. However, without that context, something like that could paint a very different picture of you in a court of law.
Let's say Spiderrob goes to court for custody of his kids. Should his wifes lawyer decide to take this a slight step further and track his internet conversations, he could be seen as a potential adulterer due to his flirtations with Carrie. In the case I posted, had it gone to court, the mans MORALITY was being called into question based on his internet search records.
People shouldn't ever have to second guess whether they should look for information on any topic based on the possibility that it could be used against them. To me, this is a dangerous road to travel.
