    It has no connection with Vanilla forums, or with this community.

    When you post something in the public domain, you accept the consequences of that. Although most sites will be civil, they are under no obligation to remove anything, unless that post itself means that they may be breaking that law or the law or they they be liable such as libel or copyright issues relating to a third party. Under most ToS as your publisher, it is their right expression that applies, as as the jurisdiction of speech is the state rather than a site. You are publishing via proxy so it is their choice of content.

    The only legal argument that you may be able to use is it could possible be used to misrepresent your views should you not be able to say this no longer represents your views. However this doesn't really work becuase it is still matter of historic record.

    If someone else libels you you may have case for removal, however this is only if it fits the legal requirement of

    Many site as a policy don't routinely remove posts or users as it can be disruptive to others, and make thread difficult to read.

    grep is your friend.
