:-) That may be true but that was over 8 years ago after all.
Perhaps they have changed. At least the fact that they want
it erased shows that they aren't proud of their former spam
anymore, which is a step in the right direction.
Of course, an apology to the list for the spamming in the
first place followed by an explanation stating that Mr. So-and-So
who was pro-spamming had been fired, would be even better,
but you can't expect too much. :-)
Seriously, though, even though someone could find the posts on
Google, that's not good enough for a removal. The person or
organization requesting the removal absolutely must state precisely
what they want removed if they have any chance of it happening.
