Why I Like TAMB
I recently ran into a web site that had directions on it for how to delete your account on various social networking sites, facebook, twitter, wordpress... The procedures are surprisingly complex, and with no guarantee of success. In some cases, the word "impossible" was used. Once you post a "mistake" out on those servers, it is permanent. The teens of the world are finding this out the hard way, posting naked photos and incendiary language.
A couple of weeks ago I created a post to my other blog that I decided I did not want to keep. There was nothing really wrong with it, I just didn't like it. I backed it up (in case I changed my mind later), deleted it from the TAMB database, and reposted. Just to be sure, I used Filezilla to remove any zombie entry files out on my server. Voilà. Gone! Sure, it may still be in the Google cache, but I doubt it. It wasn't out there long enough for that slow 'bot to find it.
This is what I like about TAMB. The results are in my control. If I want it there, it's there. When I want it gone, it's gone.
