I guess there must be a Michael Taylor who is considered a threat to security, because virtually every time I fly a call has to be made to the TSA before it is determined that I am not the guy they are after. This story from focusses on the effectivity of the list. An excerpt:

The Robert Johnson meant to be on the No Fly List would seem to be the known alias of a 62-year-old black man who was convicted of plotting to bomb a Hindu temple and a movie theatre in Toronto. After serving 12 years, he was deported to Trinidad. But the airlines ticket agents don’t have any of that information on their computer screens. They just have the name, not even a date of birth.
