I'm wanting to remove some things from google groups. I've removed the posts I've made but people have quoted my text, essentially making the removal of my posts useless. As the google groups help states, I have to contact the author of the posts to see if they can remove them.
The problem I have is that the e-mail addresses the authors used still exist, and if the last time they used to post on the groups is any indication - they are no longer used. I've repeatedly tried to contact the authors, but to no avail, even when sending with a read receipt message.
There are about 30 messages that were made approximately 6 years ago, how can I go about removing these 30 messages that are causing many problems. I'm open to any options, and am even willing to write to Google to explain the situation, but doing so may just destroy all chances of getting the messages removed.
If there is a google employee reading this, please let me know so I can bribe you...
