Please help me get to grips with the expression leave little swirls and eddies in their wake. Below you’ll find the context I found the phrase in. I think it means that Google sometimes does little things that are just a bit evil. But is the phrase to leave little swirls and eddies in the wake a commonly used one?
Thanks in advance.
Here is the text:
It is a constant worry because although Google would not intentionally ban someone without reason, it seems that if they’re in doubt they ban first and reconsider if the ban is protested.
So while they are not actually “doing” evil, they occasionally leave little swirls and eddies of evil in their wake. I find that bothersome, especially since my account probably wouldn’t warrant their answering my phone call, they would make me wait (in angst) for an interminable email.
