Has there been some assessment of how justified have those seeking the
"right to be forgotten" been in becoming forgotten? By doing so does it
risk changing the record in a way that is not beneficial to the
community and historical record?

I warmly second the plaudit and thanks to Brandon for his support of
UKNOF.  He has played a very substantial part in making UKNOF what it is
