I have been trying to remove some search results within Google Groups - stuff I posted on health boards many years ago and which I never dreamed would get ranked anywhere on a search engine, let alone anything as accessible as Google. They are under my own name, which unfortunately is very unusual.
Getting rid of my own posts is possible with their removal tool, but other peoples' messages which quote my name are more problemmatic. Most of the e-mails to the people in question have bounced.
Therefore I think I have no option but to try to bury the search results under newer more benign ones - the question is, how do I find which newsgroups - and we are talking Google's Groups search sub-section here - will get my messages posted to the top of the search rankings?
Or if anyone else can suggest a solution I would be grateful - even paying if need be, although that is a last resort.
