What people don't understand about the search engine

I've gotten 2 requests so far for the removal of "personal information" from the search engine. The problem is that this information is available via other public means. I don't know if the people that request the removal understand that this information is available to the public and that is how I got the information. In any event, I have removed the information because I am not interested in invading someone's privacy which they have already published anyway. The intention of the search engine is to make it easy for someone to search for your contact via the internet instead of having to turn pages to find it - that was all, period. I hope everyone understands that the systems are designed are not here to violate their privacy and to cause problems. I am more interested in research of the systems I build with respect to performance and design.
