Hi :)
If you uploaded the file to somewhere then try goign back to where you uploaded it and remove it from there.
I had a look through the thread
but i couldn't find the upload link in there. If you did use Nabble then you can go back to your post and edit out the link. Subsequent replies might be more difficult to deal with but people here are usually willing to help.

Another way might be to email "postmaster" here but i can't find the right address right now. The postmaster address might be in

Best first thing to try is fidning where you uploaded the file and see if you can remove it from there.

The bug is at
The only thing I could do was to tag it as 'obsolete', which doesn't stop Google from indexing it.
I could also change the file name and MIME type, but not remove it :(
It still pops up first when Googling for 'Magnus Hildershavn', and the 'Show HTML' still shows the formatted original file :( I've been on several closed and open beta teams through the years, but I have never ever before seen any of my attached/posted example files popping up on Google!
IMO it is not a good policy to make such files available to robots.


Regards from
Tom :)

I just discovered that a rtf file I attached as an example file when I
reported a bug with rtf imports losing the register tags is now *very*
available when doing a Google search.
The problem is that this file was never meant to be public, as it
contains a short genealogical report with living people in it. This is
not even legal to publish on the net.
I never thought that such file attachements would be made publicly

How is it possible to get this RTF file removed/deleted?

The bug was fixed BTW..

This may or may not work: Try going to the Bug page and leave a comment that you want your file to be removed. They may or may not do so. Also, it may take a couple of days before anyone sees your message.

I already did that, but I guess I'll have to wait a few days to see if anything happens. I also managed to remove/change the file name, which shows the rtf with all tags visible. But the Google 'Show as HTML' still shows the fully readable document :(
