    I just read something in today's paper that says the only way to remove something that would show up in google is to request it from the person who runs the website - not google. This doesn't always happen. The article said if you can't get it removed then create other things that would come up first thus burying the one you don't want lower on the list. They mentioned LinkedIn and Facebook and some other business networking sites and even suggested buying a domain name of "yourname.com" which would presumably turn up first. I not an expert but just read this article.

    Yep, this is how I found this board too. I was doing a search for a quilting question and a google post brought me to this site for the answer! I'm so thankful for that post as I am truely enjoying this site! Don't think of it as a bad thing, its a positive!

    It's a column in our paper by Anne Krishnan who is a columnist for The News & Observer in Raleigh, NC. Her website is stumpthegeeksnewsobserver.com. Her column is called "stump the geeks" and the title of this article is "A blog just won't go away". It's a question and answer type of column.

    How would deleting the pics you posted help? As best I can tell there is nothing in either of the 3 pics that shows anything identifiable.

    Nothing you post on the internet can ever be private.
