Again, sorry for the late reply, as I'm going through my LUGOD folder
this morning.

Honoring such requests for removal seems to give in to almost DMCA-ish
(is that a new word?) requests like having Google removing certain pages
from the Google cache.

The damage is when someone shoots himself/herself in the foot or trolls.

Don't lose sleep over it, Bill.  Then again, if you had, it'd been at
least a week since you last slept. :-)
