Should the "right to be forgotten" from Internet searches be a civil right? No sarcasm!

No. A person is only on the Internet if they choose to be. There are no "rights" that absolve a person from their own personal choices.

No. There are times we broadcast our business and thats our own fault. However if people publish things about people without their consent, well it isnt the fault of the search engines, or google bots. Those bots will find all published data. Unfortunately, if your name is slandered on the internet, or even for true things needing privacy, you must adress the site(s) in question, not the search engine that found it.

Another issue I see is if the site is taken down you can still find the site later. I kinda feel like we have the right to know of anything that used to be public records. So nothing is ever forgotten but we can always at the very least try and control what is currently published.

I take my freedom of information more seriously than my freedom of privacy. There really isn't privacy in an age of information. Good thing cause I have nothing to hide but if were to be slandered, believe I woukd be fighting it, using the same technology to defame a person can also make it right.
