This is a weird discussion.

We, In Canada (I'm sure we have TONN of Canadians in the house) have the ability to be pardoned for crimes, based of severity and court order ship. Sometimes , it doesn't even appear on your Record

This idea of a Criminal record or forms of this, is to let people know the kind of Character you are. Yes, we all make mistakes, these can be looked over based off Qualification for the job, what have you.

Either way, so much circumstance has gone into this process. Does this not count towards "The right to be forgotten" Or the idea of whipping it all just seems silly. Again, If I'm hiring someone, Let's say, as a bartender. They have a history of alcoholism and violence when drinking. Why shouldn't me, as someone that is looking after my lively-hood, not be made aware of this? That's a risk I'm not willing to take, when I can hire a stable-minded individual, who would be clearly better suited for the job. Good to know, I can count on him to be a bouncer maybe. Who know's maybe he will clean himself up, but having a history of Violence would still be in the back of my mind.

Now we talk about me in my own home. If someone is harassing me, at my door lets say. They are bugging me cause I did a hit'n'run, they only know me from the newspaper.

What about that person's mental state right? Yes, they did something inhumane, but to panic? That's a normal reaction, specially if you have done something so against nature that you prevented life itself.

Now, we have seen circumstances. With all of that being said, the core idea of "The Right to be Forgotten" has a difficult battle ahead.

Don't we still have some places without internet, phones, and power? We need to keep those places, long as people there want it that way.

With respect, you have a problem with your theory. Would seem its not about criminal records as it is privacy on the internet, specifically info of a personal, non-criminal nature the person(s) volunteered. There was no mention of hiding felons or such nonsense, but keeping people's private lives private.

This is a matter of 'presumption of innocence' and 'social death'. In case of America, you need the right to be forgotten, because you still have the right to drag people through the mud and hang them long before they're even found guilty of any crime. I just find it funny, that instead of fixing that terribly obvious issue, you need a 'right to be forgotten', on top, as if that's ever gonna work.

A portion of this covered how I would've been let's say harassed. It's fair to say I support the document. To a degree though. To stay on point and follow up with it. I would say they need to reform a lot of these ideas, give more concise guide lines. cause to EVERYONE that was criminally charged, would be unreasonable. Sometimes people are just bad, we need to be educated about that

lol yes. i reckon making small deliberate mistakes when giving out information helps trace who's selling the info.

The idea that the right to be forgotten would lead to some censorship dystopia is a gross exaggeration of what the idea is meant to accomplish. Before the internet, if people ruined their reputation by saying something stupid, they could conceivably skip town and start anew. The internet makes that not possible, and the right to be forgotten seems like a decent way to preserve our ability to start over.


This.

Imagine being star wars kid.

Revenge Porn Sites should be closed down permanently if ya ask me. That's the dissemination of pictures without consent. Imagine doing that to a movie!

Imagine those people who lost excellent job opportunities because of a Facebook image or post when they were at a party, or when they were in college? Those people would benefit from this. Of course, the ones that would benefit the most would be those people, but also, politicians. They'd likely scour the net getting rid of embarrassing items about themselves, just in time for election season.

It's a two bladed sword, cutting both ways. If it affects stuff that's on Facebook and similar sites, Vines, and the like, then I guess I'm O.K. with it, but if it also means deleting news stories, articles, or dramas, etc about an individual, then I think that would go too far.
