(Newser) – Big Brother is watching and he doesn't like it when his mistress talks about him on the Internet.

The "Recovery Girl 007" blog by former CNBC correspondent Kate Bohner details shedding her addictions, including, apparently, her married ex-beau, code-named "Dr. Strangelove." But the Blogspot site vanished after Bohner was threatened by Schmidt's attorneys, according to a source. "When a billionaire threatens you, you get in line," said the source.

I understand people's concern with big brother getting their way as in this case but to say "If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place," is even worse and stinks of an even bigger brother.
