Question: I work in D.C. in a field where discretion is important, and I'm a single guy on the dating scene, both of which mean I get Googled often. I just discovered that my most recent ex-girlfriend, who was a functioning alcoholic, had eating disorders, and had spent time in a mental institution, slandered me online under an anonymous profile, calling me emotionally abusive and manipulative. She did this in the middle of our brief relationship - which I ended - never told me about it, and when I called asking her to take it down, I was threatened with a lawsuit for harassment. (She's a lawyer.)
Her link is on the first page of my Google results, and though I created multiple new personal sites to knock it down, it stubbornly stays up there. Her vile comments are untrue and likely composed in a drunken rage, but you can't remove things from the Internet, and I've already been asked about them by a potential date.
