A Pennsylvania crusader has slapped Google with a $5bn lawsuit, claiming that the world’s largest search engine is endangering his personal safety.
With a suit filed in federal court, Dylan Stephen Jayne insists that the company is guilty of “crimes against humanity” because its name turns up when his social security number is scrambled and turned upside down.
After much study, The Reg can confirm that Jayne’s tax payer ID can be juggled to reveal the word Google – if you use your imagination. But we have elected not to publish the number. For obvious reasons.
By calling itself Google, Jayne argues, Google has exposed him to attack by an army of culturally diverse, net-savvy terrorists. “A person regardless of race or religion that wishes to cause acts of terrorism would look for social security numbers that are made readily available on the public use databases,” his suit reads.
