Given that the results still show up when you search for these names in the EU, it was likely someone else that was at some point in time mentioned on this page (correctly or not, it is Wikipedia after all). So now when you search for this other person, this specific Wikipedia page will not show up.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
If I make a page now writing that you are a pedophile, with your name and address on top of it, and I am outside of your jurisdiction, there is absolutely nothing you can do. If you are a European, you can at least get this page disassociated from your name in search engines.
Lets leave it to the justice system to do justice, please, we've seen what vigilante justice brings us.
Amazon is so horribly money-losing that the founder is a billionaire and has his own space travel company?
Fact is that Amazon could run a profit if they wanted to, just deciding to invest everything back.
Right, spoken like someone that has never had all their clients cut off from emailing the rest of the internet because one other client at a different ISP had an issue. You are not forced to use RBLs much in the same way you are not forced to use a metal detector in the airport. You don't use it, they use it on you. They are happy to block (oh sorry: list) an entire ISP for having a single problem that may not even be under their control.
Having said that, they also provide a valuable service, but accurate isn't the word I would use.
That's what I said, tweak the defaults. I know you can change the options or install plugins... however, that gets really tiresome if you use enough different machines.
So how about a fork of Firefox for sane people? Just some defaults tweaked.
- Ask me where I want to save things instead of just dumping things in a folder
- URL bar with konqueror style commands like 'ggm:' for google maps, 'gg' for google, 'imdb' for imdb...
- One click pass through when an SSL certificate doesn't match (yes, tell me, but probably I knew this already)
- One click toggle of plugins
- history off by default (who uses that?)
Using Holland to mean the whole country is widely accepted usage, also in the Netherlands. Some people from outside of the two Holland provinces (and also some pedantics, and Belgians) have a misplaced sense of inferiority and dislike it when you call them part of Holland.
Anyway, I'm happy to Netherlands is at least putting some effort in to get to automated driving. With my skills, if I drive myself I will be dead within the day by some stupidity.
