Can you please take down my old post: “18.04 to 20.04 upgrade failure. On Wed, 24 Feb 2021

Asked by Hugo Toonen

Hi. I want a question I asked on Wed, 24 Feb 2021 called “18.04 to 20.04 upgrade failure” taken down if that’s okay? It was posted over a year ago. Is this possible? It appears on google search. I think it’s out of date.

You can "empty" your question yourself.

visit https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-release-upgrader/+question/695749/+edit
and replace the title and description by "question removed" or something similar.

Besides each comment there are a yellow and a red button (the yellow one for editing which keeps the history visible and the red one for completely deleting the comment) or a "hide" link below.

I will hide the comments that I made, such that no contents remain in your question.

www.mail-archive.com

This is what I’m asking on Question #701678 thank you.

I am not sure I understand why you want to remove your question on a public bugtracker/forge like Launchpad. What do you intend to achieve by doing this? Can you provide more details? Also,

> the conversation can be found on internet search engines. Could this conversation at mail-archive be removed from internet search engines too please?

this `mail-archive` seems to be a third-party archiving service that we, the Launchpad team, have no control over. So you may have to ask them about removing stuff on their sites.

Sorry I mean could I be removed from “ mail-archive “. You say they are independent from launchpad, sorry I thought you were the same. I ask questions from launchpad & mail-archive puts them online.

I’m just looking for online privacy, scammers collect data. I know it’s just for reference but online privacy matters. I’ve no problem with launchpad. Would you be able to tell me how to contact mail-archive? So it can be removed. Thank you.

I've made that bug report private, so it won't be visible to search engines.

We don't have any more special information about contacting mail-archive.com than you do, I'm afraid.

The “link” to “empty” the question takes you to a page saying what you are looking for does not exist or you don’t have the ability to access it.

Replacing the title & description with “question removed” to “empty”, or, selecting the red button to permanently delete the comment is what I want. But I can’t access it. Thanks.

... however, I noticed that they have a FAQ:

https://www.mail-archive.com/faq.html#delete

You don't need to empty out the question any more; Guruprasad already moved it to a hidden project so that it's no longer accessible.

I assume that you refer to https://<email address hidden>/msg5888604.html and the other messages in that thread (at least that is what I found in a google search). I do not see any privacy-related information in these messages.

Whenever somebody creates a launchpad bug report for Ubuntu or adds a comment to an Ubuntu bug report, then an e-mail notification is sent out to the users in the list of persons to be notified, and also a copy is sent to <email address hidden>
The service mail-archive creates a searchable archive of the ubuntu-bugs message list.

On the page with the copy of your message on mail-archive (on the link above) you should see a footer with information about mail-archive, including instructions how to request deletion of a message, https://www.mail-archive.com/faq.html#delete

Thank you. There have been 3 of you helping. I think it takes a few days or longer for google search to no longer show “mail-archive”. I see “answers.launchpad.net” has appeared on google search too, Will that be removed too? If so then I’m all done, thank you.

Since we have hidden the bug and question mentioned and we do not have any control over the results showing up in the search engines' results (which can be specific to a user and so on) and how long they take to go away, I would recommend marking this question as 'Solved'.

Thanks Guruprasad, that solved my question.
