Thanks to all for responding, sure I've left someone out here - sorry for

The response from Google Product forum was as I expected *You must get it
removed from the source to have any chance if it eventually dropping off
from the various search engines out there*.

I have had no luck yet getting a response from the admin for this mailing
list =  lubuntu-users-owner at lists.ubuntu.com  or  gilir at ubuntu.com.  Will
continue trying.  Thanks for the lead on that wxl.

Have not been running Lubuntu for over a year, am a very happy Ubuntu user

Other then the past three days I have not posted to the Lubuntu mailing
list since July 2013 & I see five occurrences with my name in the month of
July.  Sure would be nice I could get an admin to spend 5 mins deleting my

Thank you
