A suggestion was to "better your name" by posting intelligent threads to slashdot
(http://slashdot.org) or the sort so they appear much higher in the
results list than the past blemishes.  Can you please explain more
about how to "post intelligent threads" and what this process is? 
Does an account need to be opened at slashdot does this form of
communication show up on searches?

There is no answer at this time.

What web browser are you using (Internet Explorer, Netscape, Firefox)?
 If you're using IE, go to "Tools->Internet Options..." Under the
general tab hit "Delete Files..." then "Clear History". That should
remove any cookies that are tracking you.  You can then go to the
privacy tab and set your privacy level higher to prevent cookies in
the future.

I believe tj10 is asking how to remove individual pages from search
engines.  He searched for his name (probably on Google) and some
unsavory posts from the past or something of the sort come up. 
Unfortunately there is no way to do this if you do not have access to
the server that the site is being hosted on.  My suggestion would be
to "better your name" by posting intelligent threads to slashdot
(http://slashdot.org) or the sort so they appear much higher in the
results list than the past blemishes.  - Cary
