Very mixed feelings about this one. On the one hand the public and the law can be very unfair to people and never let them move on or be forgiven in order to better themselves.

On the other hand, I want to chop the fingers off of people who just erase stuff off of websites to suit their own purposes and to hell with things like the public good, fairness or an honest discussion.

I wonder what implications this will have in the overall world of search engines. There is a lot more out there than just Google. If people can't find stuff they think might have been "forgotten" by google, they will just start switching over to yahoo or the likes.

Truly the most effective way to eliminate unwanted data on yourself is to go to the source and have them remove it, rather than relying on every single search engine across the world to properly "forget" you. The EU court ruling was really stupid.
