That's possible, but you should send your request directly to
the responsible person, instead of assuming or hoping they are
"reading along" on a different medium.

As others have replied more or less politely, what you're asking
for _might_ be possible, but it is futile. Let's assume a mailing
list administrator or a forum moderator actually deletes all your
posts. What about their copies in mailing list archives and web
caches that are not under the control of said administrators? What
about messages that users of the lists or the forum have saved
locally? You have no way to delete them. Nobody has. And you
can't even get evidence about location and responsibility for
every _copy_ of your messages, wherever they may reside...

Maybe it sounds harsh, but I don't mean to be insulting: What has
been posted cannot be unposted. DEAL WITH IT.

Also keep in mind that the Internet never forgets (except the
really interesting and important stuff maybe). :-)
