Oh, come on!

What about all those companies offering to sell YOU information they collected about YOU so YOU could see if they are wrong and correct them so YOUR credit score won't suffer? Even the ones that say "we monitor your credit score for free" are getting something somehow.

Here's an idea to make money: invent a "personalized terrorism score" which could hypothetically be used to indicate your chance to be probed by TSA officers. Create a service that charges $10 per month to monitor your PTS, with an app to check if you've been near to suspicious places or called suspicious people or liked suspicious posts or did anything that could remotely be somehow considered in the general direction of anything suspicious. Profit.
