Destruction of online information

The Nazi book burnings were a campaign conducted by the German Student Union to ceremonially burn books in Nazi Germany and Austria in the 1930s. The books targeted for burning were those viewed as being subversive or as representing ideologies opposed to Nazism. These included books written by Jewish, pacifist, classical liberal, anarchist, socialist, and communist authors, among others. Read more on WIKIPEDIA.

I have a sad story to tell about the massacre of information, about the destruction of information that ought to be available to the public. The burning of books, actions where a powerful individual for various reasons is trying to erase history is something to be taken seriously.

Destruction of valuable information has recently taken place in the online world of the internet. A certain Bangkok based developer have deliberately deleted all online newsletters and press releases prior to the year 2012.

It would seem that the target for this action is one of the former CEO’s of the company. All mentioning of this particular former CEO have systematically been erased from the company’s website. It is like this person never existed, like he never had anything to do with the company.

In doing so the company have deleted valuable information about price levels and important events that have taken place during the past 10 years. A whole database of information is no longer available to the public.

Perhaps it can be seen as payback for actions taken by the former CEO, perhaps it is some kind of revenge or vendetta on the former CEO. I don’t know for sure but I have my suspicions.

Whatever the reason is, the general public has been taken hostage because of this. Digging into the past have become extremely difficult, not impossible for me but for most others it is.
