Good. Nobody has a right to be forgotten anyway, because everyone has a right to remember. If you don't want crap on the internet, don't put it there.... Continue Reading If you do anyway, you forfeit your right to have anyone care if you're upset about it. That's like planting gardenias in your front yard and then being upset they're there and demanding the guys who build the roads to your house remove them for you. Screw that. Other people don't have to invest in resources to remedy your mistakes.
(1) CNIL is right. It should set the standard and fine Google $1000/day for every day that Google is not in compliance with an individual's right to be forgotten across... Continue Readingall of its Web properties.
(2) Mr. Fleischer's argument may be valid for general, blanket censorship of a class of information requested by a third party, e.g., if the request was from the Thai government to delist all outlawed critique of the Thai king or from a pro-Russia lobbyist to delist all "gay propaganda" as defined by Russian law.
However, Mr. Fleischer's argument is untenable (a) for request from a directly concerned first party (vs. third party); and (b) when the delisting is requested for specific bits of information (vs. a class of information) to delist specific bits of information directly related to that party.
For example, Google should refuse to delist all coming out blog post on the basis that they are outlawed by Russia. But it should comply with a delisting request of Joe Gay asking to delist the blog post in which he describes his coming out; or with his request to delist the tweet in which his friend Jane Straight supports him.
(3) As for Mr. Simpson's position that the removal of a search entry is not censorship, I respectfully disagree. Every delisting request is censorship and must be carefully pondered, weighting the free speech argument on one side and the privacy argument on the other.
The CNIL has done the weighting properly and has come to a reasonable conclusion. Time for Google to come to reason too, Mr. Fleischer.
So far so good, some differences of course from 8.1 but much better than 8.0. Didn't lose much on the download either, nothing relevant at this time. AOL seems to...

There was no mention about deleting your previous Windows running system and it's effect. I deleted my 8.1 to keep things clean. The new Microsoft Edge browser will take some time to figure . . . gotta like the better protection put in. I'll still clean my unit everytime I run it.
