    The policing of online information

    I have a rather trivial question raised in an idle moment.

    Elizabeth TenHouten appeared on British television recently and, puzzled, I searched on her name.

    The information available is beyond merely minuscule, I got the impression that a team of lawyers must have sent desist orders to every website that has ever mentioned her without explicit permission. It is astonishing how little biographical information can be seen. Maybe it's a Google UK privacy order, who knows.

    Are there other names like this? Is it a privacy issue?

    I did consider that and no, I think it's wrong. There's a scoured feel to the Internet search, the ground has been raked.

    First I've ever heard of her. Obviously not an attention seeker.

    Shes an actress, married to some guy called Tito and gives beauty tips. Whatever that means it sounds boring to me.

    Re: The policing of online information

    I got to page 5 on Google with stuff coming from America and Australia.....at least, didn't go any further.

    Then I did the same for me, there are 8 of me on Facebook......none of them me, I did Google my full name.
    Anyway to cut it short, with my full first and second name didn't bring back anything past page 2 and only a couple that were relevant.

    I haven't put any security orders in place.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    From what I saw, absolutely none of those links are remotely biographical. They appeared mainly to be commercial.

    Re: The policing of online information

    Next thing you know Katsung will be making posts about how the Feds are censoring Spot's Google - although it doesn't appear to be affecting anyone else's. I put in the name & was flooded with information on there - although I can't say I've ever heard of her. But then, I've never heard of most so called celebs. I make it a point to disregard them as much as possible.

    I'd not count her as a "celeb" as you choose to put it, she seems rather more of a recluse with a commercial outlet who allows it to be known that she attended two charity events.

    However, perhaps you're right and you've googled biographical information where I failed. You could demonstrate your success by posting, for example, a link to any webpage showing her year and place of birth. That's biographical, it's what Wikipedia would normally have in the top right info-box for all biographical pages. The very fact that she has no Wikipedia entry suggests I'm right though.
