There isn't merit.  It became public, not private, the moment you
published it.  I have the right to free speech, the EU be damned.  Are
these numbnuts going to demand that libraries black out newspaper
articles on microfilm because they mention someone that doesn't like the
coverage of themselves?  Sure, I molested children 5 years ago, but I
have the "right to be forgotten" so when anyone searches for my name on
the Internet they won't find out.  Give me a break.
