Following the initial announcement involving Tornado service, someone said: “Obvious something like this was always going to happen, right? Consensys (dunno about Alchemy) is an American company, and when the Man comes a-knocking, they’re hardly going to go rogue. Are there any potential problems with metamask being fucK*d with too?”
Someone else answered this: “Thankfully metamask is open source (tho the license is restrictive) – which unlike infura means if consensys become a bad actor, the community could route around it.”
