On request, Debian can remove spam. 12 year old spam? Already indexed in Google / on the Wayback machine ... every
mail archiver there ever was.
In this instance, as outlined in another email, this lady has compounded the problem because her particular name
is unusual - Google for it now and the results asking for removal of embarassing stuff are #2 and #3.
Moral: don't write anything in haste or that you'd be averse to someone quoting against you in later years.
A very wise barrister once advised - "Don't put anything into writing that you wouldn't be prepared to see used
directly agianst you in a court of law" Possibly a little excessively dramatic but still excellent advice
