Some time ago I noticed that Remrq.com were archiving my list. As is the
case with many people, I was not happy with this. So, I sent them a
cease and desist letter by snail mail, addressing it to their designated
person under OCILLA.
I had a private discussion with the Remarq people about this, where
they removed one of my lists from their archive (one that happened
to be discontinued) but leaving all my others in place. that led to a
further, somewhat frustrating discussion that ended up with me giving
their representative an e-mail "please stop annoying me" message, and
since I simply don't believe they are capable of managing C&D
requests based on my discussion, I handle it here at the source by
rejecting all email from remarq.com. That way, they can't subscribe
their systems to my lists in the first place, so they can't archive
Since they can't archive my site without my implicit agreement (by
allowing them access to my lists), and I explicitly deny them that
access, to me, a C&D becomes moot. And since my experience iwth them
left me unconvinced they can manage C&D properly, that's fine by me.
