It is sometimes too late to do anything when google indexes comments made years ago and you put your full name to them.
Although you can make comments that make you look brilliant and caring and hardworking then wait for them to be indexed!
According to my real name I am a environmentally friendly, accute business minded family orientated politically aware hard worker!
I keep my usernames for my off the cuff remarks.
Also I always feel that employers can be too robotic in employing staff expecting people to just work and work and have no views or bad habbits or to have lived at all unless it is corporate living.
But if you want a job at MTV or as a DJ then the flip side is true.
Make your comments appear like you have travelled and "met" with many and partaken in most things!
Let he who is without sin......
that is what I say.
I imagine google get many requests to remove comments from indexes daily. But what if your name is John Smith or Dave Jones?
You'd get no job anywhere as you have probably done everything under the sun.
"that was another John Smith" I would say!
Maybe we should all stop using the net as it is a goldmine for BIG BROTHER and scamsters.
