I am in Dubai at present and just looking at the news about the Google data ruling on TV......this means that you have the right to request the removal of anything you don't like what comes up on the search.......what do you think?

That sounds odd ...

There are way too many people on Google with my name for me to worry about what they share about me LoL.

but since it is all in german language:groan: it is in the multi lingual section.;)

Ben, you seem to have been very nervous recently. What is it? You are supposed to be as cheerful and gung-ho as most of the Russians.

The abundance of emoticons, which is not your usual self. As far as I know German-speakers, it is an indication that you have been overly excited today.:)

i just thought to make the answer look longer, these -groan- things are quite big. instead of just using words without any -emotions- as i usually do. but has nothing to do with me being overly nervous,excited or whatever.

Well I've got the same name as a moderately famous tv/film star. So all I get is stuff about him.

By the way, he changed his name to be the same as mine

I suggest a new name for a new Russian search engine: goolag.ru

My name gets 104,000,000 hits so might take me a while to sift through it all.

For many years, I pay a company to conduct weekly trawls for my real name on the WWW. Once found, the process to remove links is undertaken! :10310:

Are you aware that it's a usual practice of companies to look through an applicant's account in Facebook, Vk, etc? If you have nothing there, it looks suspicious. So, if you want to be hired in the future, you'll have problems...

It is usual practice on the rotten West and in those RF companies who follows. In addition, it is applicable to office plankton only. ;)

Of course I'll have problems, if I'll allow myself to be hired by clinical idiots. :)

No.
Once I read that US police said regarding somewhat teenager it's very suspicious when a boy or a girl in this age has no account in that F@#$book.
:jawdrop:
You're out of the row, understand? This means, you don't follow herd. This means, you're not controllable and your behaviour is not predictable.

Thanks for the tip, but most of my current and former colleagues do not position themselves on the WWW, but they are all still in employment and are magnificently paid for their skillset ;)

Most earn good money, but they do not have the time to enjoy it!

Sometimes quality of life is more important, so enjoy working the stonecrusher! ;)
