    So have you heard the news about the college student in New York City? In a court case involving revenge porn, a judge has ordered Google to make the name of the woman in question disappear form search results pages. Essentially erasing her from the internet.

    My question is......how is this possible when the odds are in favor of other people having the same name?

    I heard about this a few days ago. I'm sure it's possible, especially with the talent that Google has in it's employ.

    I think porn that isn't a business should be totally blocked from the internet. This is what happens when just anyone can post that stuff online.

    I'm not sure I heard about this story. What happened? If it's a matter of protecting someone's privacy, then I think that the courts did well in this case. It should be quite easy for Google to erase that part.
