"They're connecting MY NAME with MY SEARCH and using it against ME," Barone writes. "Do I get that box if I do a search for someone else's name - my brother's, Rhea's, various boys that I religiously stalk - no, I don't.

You can't play your music and expect me to fall in love with you. Back off, Google."
