It genuinely makes me sad that Shep Smith wants to be forgotten because I guarantee you he’s talking about being outed. As a liberal, millennial queer.....I feel for somebody stuck HARD in a conservative, picturesque Herero lifestyle who is secretly gay. I can’t imagine how desperately he just wants everybody to see him as the same person he’s always been....and like having a family and everything?? As a fucking Fox News anchor??? Fuck. I wish him well.....let it be known, he’s one of the only rational people on the entire network. I’m sure he’s there for strategic reasons on the part of the network but still........I feel for the dude. And I salute him. I’m gonna go drink more gin now ✌🏻 thanks for coming to my ted talk
Im 54 and that card catalog example made perfect sense. I had a sheriff say shit about me and never met me....I think I would like to use this. PS..this sherrif has sexy pics with other men is all over the internet...yes he is gay but still inappropriate and no longer a sheriff in az.
Honestly I think that picture of you looks cute though (not sexy obviously but not ugly either.... like at all.... which is in and of itself kinda weird considering what it typically should have been viewed as *look of confused self reflection*
YELP, here we come...
"A businessman has won his legal action to remove search results about a criminal conviction in a landmark “right to be forgotten” case that could have wide-ranging repercussions.
The ruling was made by Mr Justice Warby in London on Friday. The judge rejected a similar claim brought by a second businessman who was jailed for a more serious offence."
"In 2014 the European court of justice (ECJ) ruled that “irrelevant” and outdated data should be erased on request."
question here: does a child pornographer not have human rights? I mean it's not like his convictions are gone, you just can't find them online which might help if he's trying to get help, a live, and be free--also the man with debt didn't put his debt online, it was a newspaper and he was trying to buy a house.
In my case while most of whatever pops up is just embarrassing things I did when I was 12 (violating basic online safety you learn in schools) some internet trolls found my autism diagnosis and sent really hateful messages to my mom. And by the way; why the hell can you just find a random stranger’s medical diagnosis through Google in the first place?!
His point about ineffectiveness of "right to be forgotten" is wrong. The one guy who started it all may have become famous, but other such requests will be executed silently, as comedians/newscasters will lose interest in it.
You can't just undo everything. There are rules to what can be removed. You can't just make google erase your crimes since there are strict rules to it.
I myself used it once because for some reason a site (that already was down at that time) had my name and adress linked with my twitter profile. While the site was down, you could still that data in the search results so i got it removed.
You should get it right before you ridicule it.
Well, it's the 5th search result in Google Images: https://www.google.com/search?q=brian+sullivan&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS740US740&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiymK2L_snZAhUCS60KHecaAUkQ_AUICigB&biw=1536&bih=734
A funny video, as always.
You're missing the essence of the right to be forgotten, though. For future videos, you may check out the Judgment of the court (http://curia.europa.eu/juris/document/document.jsf?text=&docid=152065&pageIndex=0&doclang=en&mode=lst&dir=&occ=first&part=1&cid=307761) or Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX:32016R0679). The right to be forgotten is the subject of many discussions in Europe now. Enough papers on the topic have been published, as well.
no one has a right to anyone else's mind, so the 'right to be forgotten' is at best a misnomer, but I would say the internet is a collective projection of everyone's mind, so it's a bogus ruling anyway.
I know this piece is old but people seem to miss the fundamental flaw of this new rule. This would only remove the photo/information on google’s search services; and only google. It doesn’t effect other search engines like Bing, Yahoo, or DuckDuckGo. It also doesn’t effect simply copying and pasting the link to said information and putting it up all over the rest of the internet. That’s why it’s impossible to scrub something off the internet. When you do take every copy of that photo someone will upload it again. It’s called the Streisand Effect.
"The only thing I know about him is the only thing he didn't want me to know".
Which in another two days will be forgotten by nearly everybody when something more exciting happens, and he will win after all.
shit I thought this was going to be about relatives of the deceased... this was in my youtube recommended videos directly above a youtuber that recently passed! (but no, they're not trying to take down videos...)
Right, the lesson learned is that Fox News Knobheads are only good for reading teleprompters and hiding their helmet-like hairdos. Otherwise, please do not provide gibberish metaphors or attempt to speak in plain English. Have mercy.
and now more than 3 years later, your argument is still flawed. About how many other cases like the one involving Mario Costeja have you read since then? probably close to zero. He was just unlucky to be the first when this stuff was still news worthy.
Even sadder, many of the stories you presented over the years, or rather the people in them would've greatly benefited from a ruling like this.
Actually, that is not right. This is customer data prevention. It is not google forgetting, it is - I don't have spam from Facebook, apple doesn't have my data for social engineering adds and I finally am able to receive data from Tinder and delete even after I have deleted my account. Please read it and elaborate on your knowledge. Oh well, since you decided to BREXIT, I guess you don't like EU anymore.
You need to be careful what you assume about people based on what's online. Here's a personal example. I used Facebook as a convenient way to gather news and such. Well, when I used it YouTube didn't have much in the field of showing horrible Fox clips and things like that. So I followed right wing and MRA things so I knew what crazy BS they spewed today. Well, I used a fake name and I got locked out. I can't get in. If you know that fake name and that I use it you might think I'm a Glenn Beck-loving MRA conspiracy theorist if you saw that. I can't delete it now. So just be cautious about how you interpret things because it might be a similar situation.
There is a big need for the ability to be forgotten on the internet. In the US alone the tens of thousands of men falsely accused of rape comes to mind. Then there's the crazy ex's, both men and women, who place damaging information on the internet to harm their ex's. Then there's children who, being naïve as many children are, place indecent pictures on the internet. Then there's the people who hit the wrong button on their iPhone and upload a discussion of their plans to kill their husband, as well the name of the guy they're hiring to do the job. Then there's the sociopathic behavior of people who laugh hysterically at a man getting his penis cut off on national tv. They might wish, at such a time as they receive treatment for their mental disorder, want to forget they were ever that sadistic and evil.
For me what comes to mind is the time when I did calculations using 3,600 joules for a kWh rather than 3,600,000. That that might resurface to scar me for life is a fear I will never live down. I even have to take anti-anxiety medications. That I didn't even notice I'd made the error . . . . *sob*
Because I'm French, I have to precise that this new law as some limitation and is very difficult to apply. Google won't put down any information on you that pass in news or picture that being use for commercial porpuse. So the pedophile or the politician can't be forgotten. But this law is for the drunk college kid who try to find a job after college...
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
