The exact number is probably lower then 50, but it didn't show some results they probably wouldn't keep doing it. Unless of course they really wanted to. Or liked knowing people's secrets. Or got a power trip from it...
honestly though, with enough data processing power it's an effective enough method that I would be more shocked if it hadn't been useful in disrupting some planned attacks.
