Just finished DTNS podcast and I am so impressed with Veronica Belmont opinion on the “Right to be Forgotten”.
A voice of reason, measured with intelligence and balanced with common sense. wow.
Yes, Public ELECTED officials, the Elected part is the key do have a lower level of privacy. Those ELECTED officials are actively working to make their actions public. V.Belmont is exactly correct.
There is a big difference between a Politician and someone who is famous, a newscaster, opinion maker or a performer. V.Belmont may be a famous newscaster but she is still should expect a level of privacy available to the less well known.
Yes, I too am careful when Tweeting or any other public comment.
You can legislate negative information entropy (ask to be forgotten) but it will not work. Some processes are 1-way.
Careful in public comment but apparently not careful enough.
