Ask HN: What could be the downside of polluting the data collected by companies?: 4

This isn’t my field, but: you might simply see further developments in determining whether users are ‘real’ or not, resulting in even more data collection and tracking. However this is probably only likely if a significant percentage of the data was known to be fake. - keiferski 2 months ago

I've wondered the same thing ... I also have a small side project to create realistic looking data dumps that can be put in unprotected S3 buckets with the idea that collecting, verifying and selling card data would become harder if only 1% of the data was real. - smoyer 2 months ago
