Google Alerts

As years go by I am somewhat interested in how certain things vanish from the Internet. Some things never do, like nude pictures. But articles can, especially when they were published in periodicals that 1) closely guarded their content from the beginning or 2) go out of business.

Perhaps they have seriously revamped their website, and everything before 20xx has been deleted from the server. That seemed to be the case for, which had deleted the review of I HATE THIS from their database. Google alerts let me know this morning that it has been restored. Huzzah!

I had a very moving, though at the time, somewhat distressing encounter with the reviewer following that particular performances. She asked me, somewhat tremulously, if it gets better. I told her it gets different.
