Which is exactly why my reply included the link to
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2005/01/msg01444.html so that page
ranks higher than the individual posts from people asking to be removed.
If every time some asks to be removed, we link to that email
in the archive, it will be considered more important than the current
emails that come out top.
