Erasing ALL knowledge of The Doctor? I don't think so

According to this entry, The Doctor "erased knowledge of him on 21st century Earth...and later did so himself throughout all of time and space."

Clara Oswin Oswald erased all knowledge of the Doctor from the Dalek database in Asylum of the Daleks (TV story) but I don't recall at any point that The Doctor in The Angels Take Manhattan (TV story) erased all knowledge of himself EVERYWHERE. If that was true then every single one of his companions (including River Song) would have no memory of him which seems, from a simple storyline perspective, highly unlikely. Look at The Snowmen (TV story), he had allies there who knew all about The Doctor. 63.143.217.227talk to me 21:12, April 12, 2013 (UTC)

River Song said he's been erasing himself from every database in existence, actually. And every database is not everyone's memory, dude.
I'll bet he didn't bother to hit up the UNIT databases - we see that they still know of him in The Power of Three, plus, plenty of personal knowledge about him in that group.--ComicBookGoddess 21:30, April 12, 2013 (UTC)
I think 63's issue is not what River said or didn't say, but rather what the article says, that is, "The Doctor had ordered Mickey Smith to erase knowledge of him on 21st century Earth, and later did so himself throughout all of time and space." The article doesn't use the word "database", it uses "knowledge", and that's what 63 is trying to point out. Shambala108 21:44, April 12, 2013 (UTC)
That's certainly a reasonable distinction.--ComicBookGoddess 06:13, April 15, 2013 (UTC)

So, I'm confused. does the doctor get 13 regenerations,and therefore 14 lives, or 12 regenerations, and therefore 13 lives?
