     9         -<p>Sometimes people post confidential information to the [mailing lists] and
    10         -then ask us to remove it.
    11         -This is mostly pointless, as the mailing lists are
    12         -mirrored by multiple third parties we have no control over.
    13         -Furthermore, it is very time-consuming for the SQLite developers to try to
    14         -isolate and remove archived information from the MailMan logs.
    15         -
    16         -<p>Therefore we have instituted the following information clean-up policy:
    17         -
    18         -<p>If you would like posts that you have submitted to any of SQLite's
    19         -mailing list archives removed, then 
    20         -make a donatation of $100 to either the
    21         -Software Freedom Conservancy or the Electronic Frontier Foundation (your choice)
    22         -and send us the receipt for your donation together with the specific mailing
    23         -list posts you want removed and the SQLite developers will then spend up to
    24         -half an hour attempting to undo your mistake as far as possible.
    25         -To reiterate: the SQLite mailing lists are mirrored by multiple third parties
    26         -and so doing this will not remove your information from the internet.
