I was listening to an NPR podcast about a web page cemetery of defunct government commissions and organizations web pages. Fairly nerdy stuff but a near throw away line caught my skeptic attention: they mentioned that a web page detailing testimony about alternative medicine got a complaint from someone who testified at the group who was upset that their testimony was showing up there in searches.

no other clues to what they were talking about. anyone have any clues?
