Re: canceling personal details on google

Next to what jprset links to wich covers google assets. The search results that google and other search engines show are scraped from various sources around the nternet. Although various laws should make it possible to request removal, it is in a lot of cases very hard to contact all the parties that display your data and thus getting everything removed, even if it is libelous. There are also lots of mirroring sites thus even if he original website cooperates and removes the data it might still persist in other places.

It is a very annoying thing, hopefully it is nothing really bad that is written about you and hopefully the people who are searching for you ask you for your side of the story instead of blindly trustung whatever a random person put up on the internet.

One tactic that one could employ is what political candidates and other such people do: control the media by posting under pseudonyms the story that you want out there, if there is too much of that, the bad stuff becomes harder to find.

Lastly, you could always claim that somebody else has the same name as you.

Any agency which claims they can remove everything is probably going to charge you substantially for it and likely will be unsuccesful. One of the good, but also bad things, of the internet is that it won't forget.

If you want and can provide just the domain names, eg for this thread http:// www.englishforum .ch/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=1526539 then just the englishforum.ch portion, I can quickly see if they have proper contact details, but do not put your hopes up too much.

Maybe http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_name explains it?

That would work too.

In my opinion idiots do not exist, you do have people who have not played enough with things and thus are not familiar with them, baby steps and one learns to play with it too

Maybe its an age thing ( Always feel very old when young people talk about computers, etc.)
Wish there was a very big thanks button for this thread
