TBogg has the details, but here’s the short story: George Tierney Jr of Greenville SC aka @geotie2323 on Twitter decided to call Sandra Fluke some vile misogynist names, and she retweeted his tweets. People including TBogg took screencaps and blogged his tweets. Now those tweets are the top results for a search on his name on Google. George Tierney Jr of Greenville SC wanted that fixed, and he sent letters threatening litigation against people for accurately repeating what he published on the internet, and demanding that they “take it off Google”.
Good luck with that tactic, George Tierney Jr of Greenville SC.
