    Umm... Editors, there's a mismatch between the thread title and the article headline in the lead entry in this thread. We aren't talking about wiped hard drives here or in the original article.

    As for Social Networking Privacy, I think Google may be finally getting it about these "Circles" vs. Face Book's older and less granular approach. Still, I agree that it would be nice to replace blocked content in conversation threads with placeholders which allow users to see what was blocked, even if we choose to block it out again once the thread makes sense to us.
