No. Is the FinCEN (or FBI) verifying addresses for future legal actions or, the NSA (CIA) introducing colored sathoshis for future monitoring transactions.

When you use this satoshi will be a trail that can be followed in the block-chain.

IMO.

There would have been a trail regardless of the mystery satoshi. That's pretty weak sauce as far as conspiracy theories go.

Maybe from a random donor? Or did you sign up to any faucet sites which have paid you 0.001?

I reckon somebody wants to find out as much as possible about the identities of the people using bitcoins. If you post 'hey who gave me a millibtc' on this forum, they now have a username to connect to that address. Even if you don't mention your address in your post, you're still one of a comparatively small number of known addresses.
So, if you've been lucky enough to get a seemingly random milli, shut up!

Maybe somebody else created a keypair for that address? I know it is very unlikely, but it could happen. So I would spend any money in that address and not use it anymore. Just in case.

To all intents and purposes it couldn't happen, if all software is functioning correctly, any more than all the atoms in someone's underwear could just simultaneously decide to move three feet to the left.  Quantum mechanically you could argue that it's possible but unlikely, but that's just sophism (or more accurately fine comedic writing).

But, of course, software can have bugs.  Could there be a flaw in the random number generation which makes a collision plausible?  Sure, there could be.

Still, I don't believe it, given the evidence in the blockchain.
Still, if OP has not divulged his address, how could the anonymous sender know his address? Duh, the blockchain is a public ledger, the question is why him specifically, and not somebody else?

The address is in the blockchain because the OP said he sent 1 BTC to it.

Is this any different, in term of privacy implications, from having a bitcoin address in your sig?

Tracking method - when you spend the poison coin along with your other coins in different addresses, it proves they are linked together.

 Somebody spread skme logical FUD about android wallets a few wreks back.  Linked it to fishing for wallets to lift.  I thought it was entirely possible... 1mbtc for a potebtal higher score?  Yeah I can buy that for a dollar.  Nsa tainted colored coins however no. Plenty of gents around here with address in sig that carry a nice fat tx record. They don't need to pull that shit to aet an example.
