Shouldn't there be a disclaimID?

gsiemens observes that "Social network users have ruined their privacy, forever" and thus argues that we should be "teaching people how to use them (social networking) responsibly". (emphasis mine)

Now the pain comes when "something appears on the Internet, it's almost impossible to remove. Within minutes, chances are a search engine will crawl it, then that search engine will cache it, so that even if the page changes, the original content will still be there, for a while, at least."

I am told that there is such a thing as which should work as another layer of privacy protection. It is supposed to let "you track, verify, classify, annotate, prioritize and share the information that is about you online."

I stick to my question above.
