    Support 'The Right to be Forgotten'

    As most internet savvy people know, the internet can make YOU your own worst enemy. Saying something that is regrettable on the internet is worse than chiseling it in stone. It's chiseling it in stone and then maling that stone to anyone that asks you for a list of anything you have ever written.

    Your words aren't just on the site you wrote it on, they are on archive sites, on screen shots, and in backups of backups. And all someone has to do is type your name into Google. Even if you have a common name all they need is just a little extra to get the right 'John Smith' by typing in John Smith Eaglewood High School.

    With that said, something that is getting bigger in Europe is getting notice here in the USA. "The Right to be Forgotten." Right now its a fight to protect people who were "young and stupid". So they are trying to pass it to protect you from your younger self. Please read the full article and support it by facebooking the article, tweeting it or what ever.

    Definitely a way for "kids" to redeem themselves from past mistakes. We live in a world now where the younger generation can say anything without face to face confrontation, but most of the time pay for it, but as most kids do, they mature, which may be hard to believe with their digital history. This will give them a chance to let the past stay in the past.
