I'm forwarding this from imc-europe to listwork, the working group which
handles the mailing list of Indymedia (which I am part of).
In general, it is never a good idea to disclose any information from a
private mailing list or 1-to-1 communication to a public mailing list
unless you have made sure that the rest of the mailing list or the other
person you are communicating with is fine with this.
E-Mails to mailing lists hosted on lists.indymedia.org can be hidden by
the admin of the respective mailing list. To ask for an email to be
hidden off the mailing list archives, send an email to
NAMEOFMAILINGLIST-owner at lists.indymedia.org (you will need to replace
NAMEOFMAILINGLIST by the name of the mailing list your email was sent
to) and explain that and why you need it to be hidden.
If the admin is unresponsive or it is a very urgent issue or the email
needs to be deleted instead of just hidden, you can contact the publicly
archived listwork at lists.indymedia.org mailing list. If you need to send
private information in this email, send it to
mailman at lists.indymedia.org instead.
Hope this helps,
