As for the links they target, those can be anything -- the notice is worded such that you only sign your name to a "good faith belief" that the links are infringing, and you're NOT explicitly under penalty of perjury on that part.
The problem here is the "knowingly". If it was all bot-generated, was it done knowingly?
If it's bot-generated, is it even a valid DMCA takedown notice? Those have to have an attestation that there is a good faith belief that the material is copyrighted and the copyright is held by the complainant, etc etc, and a bot cannot hold a belief.
I don't think you need to go looking for explanations for why Windows sometimes has problems. Occam's Razor would lead one to believe it's just problems with Windows - even if the drive actually is NSA-infected.
Re: 'You thought /we/ worked for /you/? That's a good one.'
The only unexpected part is how blatant they are about it, but I suppose with an almost entirely gutless and spineless court system, it's not like they have to worry at all about someone calling them out on their actions.
Even if they got called out, what could happen? The DOJ is in charge of enforcement and they're sure not going to do anything about it. That's why they can act (or fail to act) with complete impunity.

Right, fighting words isn't really related to hate speech, I think it was pretty much an aside from the esteemed Mr. Fenderson, but it caught my eye. I think there's common misunderstanding that the right to free speech is absolute in the US, but it isn't, and I agree the more people know about that the better.
The supreme court even ruled that "fighting words" are protected speech.
I know this is an oldish post but...
'In 1942, the U.S. Supreme Court established the doctrine by a 9–0 decision in Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire. It held that "insulting or 'fighting words,' those that by their very utterance inflict injury or tend to incite an immediate breach of the peace" are among the "well-defined and narrowly limited classes of speech the prevention and punishment of [which] … have never been thought to raise any constitutional problem."'
