Hidden From Google – listing all the censored ‘people’ results on search engines

hiddenfromgoogle

The recent ‘right to be forgotten‘ ruling from the EU has definitely allowed some very…um… interesting people to avoid public attention in Europe, and even more so now that Bing has just joined the party. The result has been as expected, various people removing their search engine listing for things like court cases and adverse newspaper reports, which means of course they can then move on and either reform, or do their stuff again to other unsuspecting victims.

This new Hidden From Google site looks like it might be able to help prevent the latter. The website is nothing more than a place which lists all the censored search results which occur because of the EU ruling.

The interesting thing is the fact that the site lets anyone add an entry (not sure whether that’s moderated, but we hope so), and there are also free-form comments on the site, which has already led to a ‘vigorous’ debate on the issues involved in the whole ‘forgetting’ scene. This one will run and run.
