Thank you. > > http://www.deatech.com/pipermail/coblist/2001/004092.html As I have had a few requests like this recently, I am including the list in my response: I don't delete messages in the archives, it takes one to two hours of my time (of which I have none to spare) to make the change to the master copy and rebuild the archives. The only exception to this rule is if a computer virus makes it through the spam and virus filters into the archives (this has only happened twice in 11 years). Everyone is warned their messages will be displayed on the web, including email addresses when they join the list, and told if this is a concern they need to use a throw away email address such as a Yahoo account. This warning dates back to the earliest years of the list (well before the message mentioned above), so there is no excuse for anyone to complain they weren't warned. It is impossible to subscribe to the list without receiving the warning, if you choose not to read it that is neither my fault nor my problem. Note: if your reason for wanting a message to be removed is concerns about your email address being harvested by spammers, there is no reason to be concerned about the message continuing to be displayed, spammers already have your email address and removing it from the web will have no significant effect on the amount of spam you receive. Once an email is found by spammers they trade email lists, sell them to new spammers, etc. nothing you can do will ever cause it to cease to be spammed or get it off their lists. Email filters are the only viable solution. Shannon C.
