"A group of privacy advocates is asking Ask.com to make some changes to its new AskEraser feature so that it better protects consumers’ privacy when they conduct Web searches.

"After a more careful review of AskEraser, we have found at least three significant flaws," a letter addressed to Ask.com Chief Executive Jim Lanzone states. It is signed by Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, as well as representatives from the Center for Digital Democracy, Consumer Action, Fairfax County Privacy Council, National Workrights Institute, Privacy Rights Now Coalition, Privacy Times, and World Privacy Forum."
