What strikes me is that the WB Machine not only stored home pages, but also old data such as kudoz point lists. Frome these lists it is easy to find the profiles which were linked at that time: I got back two very old profiles I closed in the meantime. Is this allright vs individual data protection regulations?
And if you know the ID of someone (go in his profile and copy the line in your browser), you can ask all the profiles the WB machine stored for this user.
Another aspect is the BB records. As from 2006, some alphabetical lists are available, with their notations. I was very surprised to see that one of my best clients had 2 on this old BlueBoard. If I were that client, I would ask to remove this record.

The source of the code in the Web-archives in this case is Proz.com. If this information was available to crawlers in 2002 and should have been protected one can hardly expect the archive to protect it now.
Probably it is not against the law to publish facts on the web.
