Editing it out of the HTML archive, the .txt format archive, and the
downloadable mbox file requires quite a lot of labour, and most methods
of doing so leave a troublesome hole in the archives. I personally (as
SVLUG's volunteer listadmin) would decline to do that for you even if
you were offering to pay me my professional consulting rate for the job,
and I notice that you weren't offering to recompense anyone for the time
I'm not going to stand in the way of any _other_ SVLUG personnel who
wish to perform that task for you, but, if they screw up the mailing
list, I'm not going to save their derrieres (and would not be the least
bit surprised if they blew something up).

It also appears in two _other_ places, as mentioned above.
