Well, ya sure did.  Making threats on first contact is a sure-fire way to
convince the other party to dig in and tell you to go to hell.

To whom did you send your original messages?  No-one on staff here seems
to have seen the previous communications to which you refer. Additionally,
it's a rare day indeed when a staffer here has honored a remove request
with respect to archived data.  Are you sure you don't have us confused
with some other site?

You didn't look very hard.  I just went through the archive for 2 minutes
and came up with the original site from which the data is mirrored. 

Any beef you have regarding that content should be directed to the people
at http://www.csoft.net/~hwa/issues.html, not us.  There's also contact
addresses on http://www.csoft.net/~hwa/.  

This is just elementary searching.  Surely you can do better than this.

You keep insisting that someone else removed the data here, yet we can
find no record of it.  Indeed, such removal runs largely counter to most
of our staff's standing practices.

Again, I encourage you to take your issue up with the original authors.
You can run around badgering the folks who have copies all you want, but
as long as the originals exist, they can be mirrored, so you're honestly
just wasting your time bugging us.

As the old saying goes, "You don't kill a dog by cutting off its tail."
