We do remove inappropriate posts

We do remove inappropriate posts when they are brought to our attention. But MySpace never bothered to ask us to remove the page -- they simply persuaded GoDaddy to nuke the whole domain. Our contact information is all over the site, and our email address and phone number is also available in the public whois. We also take removal requests at email@example.com. We quickly comply with reasonable requests, and publicly mock the unreasonable ones.
In any case, a service like MySpace should ALWAYS disable the accounts and notify the users immediately when it finds valid password files on the Web. To think you can just shut down the web sites and pretend the breach never happened is ridiculous. The list is still widely available via a simple Google search.
