While it is most prominent in Europe currently, that does not mean it will not come to the US in some capacity. In fact there have been two court cases in the US regarding it: Melvin v. Reid and Sidis v. FR Publishing Corp. The first was in favor of the Right to be Forgotten and the second was against it.

This is a not a recruiter-friendly region... and that name is kkkiiinnndddaaa crappy.

Post self-deleted by Nation of Quebec.

In regards to the poll, I'm generally in favor, although it should be handled on a case by case basis. For example politicians, corporations, and serial killers should not have the right to be forgotten. On the other hand, people who had smear campaigns against them, those who have been falsely accused of crimes, and have been acquitted/found not guilty have every right to be forgotten.

Am I the only one who doesn't see an updated map on the forums? The regional map is blank for me and has been for the last two days. Or am I missing the link for the map in a different location?

I assume you do not have NS++. The regional map on the website is not the one with the countries on it. Here is the link to the one with the nations (https://i.imgur.com/qTUonZK.png) and I recommend you get the NS++ add on to your browser.

I just don't have NS++ on my work computer and that is usually what I'm on :p Thanks for the heads up though, I thought it was also on the forums.

I vote neutral since I am in favour when there is good evidence that personal informations its false, wrong, inaccurate or misleading... but I am against regarding anything else.

Also, did you know that, if you leave in France (for example) your "Right to be Forgotten" can ONLY be exercise within google.fr and not in google.com?
"Regulators have criticized the company�s approach, which has resulted in greater publicity for the ruling while also making it easy for EU citizens to bypass its effects (by, say, switching from a local version of Google to Google.com)."

UK House of Lords determine "Right to be Forgotten" is wrong. Here is a direct quote from the Lords committee findings:

Our concern is that the practical aspects work for individuals, so we do not want to set expectations which cannot be met. Going beyond the idea of a search engine, if information is so proliferated on the internet, how would it be practical to remove all that information? As a regulator, we only want to enforce things in a way where we can achieve the end results…

We rather doubt whether the Government believe there are "ways to make this practical and workable".
