I would be in the moobs book So using the case of Mario Costeja González, are you saying that instead of using the indexing system to find information you should check every web site for any relevant information, or physically visit ever newspaper, every government archive and spend a few months trawling through microfiche records. The simple matter is, that by removing entries from the indexing system (Google) all that has been achieved is to make it more difficult, costly, and time consuming to find the information people may need. But doing a quick search on the worlds biggest index of the Internet is a darn site quicker and easier than visiting many different sites, and not knowing if you may have missed something. Isn't this going a bit OT, however you or I view how the events played out, the fact remains that had she been able to quickly and easily look up his name in an indexing system she would have found out he had a history of domestic violence, and the relationship may not have gone any further than the first contact they had on the internet dating site. It's why the DVDS now exists. Yes anyone can make a request, but a request is very different from disclosures. Information is only disclosed to someone who is in a position to use the information to protect the person from the abuse, the majority of the time that would be the partner. But at the end of the day the DVDS is just an indexing system, sure it may have tighter controls, but in the end what the person does with that information is up to them. I would disagree. You have said people shouldn't rely on Google, and also said things like, irrespective of what Google does or doesn't say. From my perspective it seems you are saying Google is providing the information, when in fact it is just an indexing system that can make it quicker and easier to find a web page with the information you are looking for. Well you are free to disagree but you are wrong IMHO. What you are saying is that instead of entering information into one generalised indexing system to quickly and easily find some information that may point you in the right direction. That what we should actually do is search countless other indexing systems, on many different systems to find the information we may need, an hope we haven't missed any indexing systems out.
