How dare they attack on my beloved Google! And oh yea, you are listed in the AOL Search Engine.

You know, The New York Times is a rag. Not only because of their subscription policy but for An Ill-Informed Stupid Article Like This. They mention Google as a factor in loss of privacy. They say how this chick put her name into google and found a bunch of stuff that she put on the internet, (webpage and stuff), well duh, if you create a web page, guess what, someone is going to find it. Now onto why the Times is a rag. They say when she eliminated her stuff online that google still kept a cached page of it. Did they mention that after you take your stuff down that it takes google a month or so to make the crawl, see its not there and eliminate it? Nope. The Times would be a good paper if they wrote more facts and less opinion. Obviously this writer wanted to get a point and didn't research very well. That, or the writer has a part time job at another search engine and is trying to bash google.
Okay, onto on how I know this guy didn't research at all. I noticed (and I wrote about it here some time ago) that when I put my real name into Google, this page showed up. Well, I kind of didn't want that so I emailed Google and they wrote back and told me what to do. It was just that simple.
They do mention a point about someone stealing someones name and email and posting in some type of newsgroup, but the way they seem to link Google to that problem is pretty lame.
