I sent an email which the recipient has copied to a public

I sent an email which the recipient has copied to a public bulletin board. Is there any way I can get that content removed from the bulletin board?
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did you say it was confidential or anything?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No, I didn't.

What does it contain? The email that is.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Various insults to the sender, who has been sending persistent marketing.

Ah. Has the board refused to remove it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The board simply isn't replying to my requests.

Its bad news I am afraid, if you wanted to get it removed then you would need to sue the Board and seek a Court order in that regard.
However the Court would then want to know if it was confidential in nature. If you didnt say it was confidential and you accept you did not and just insults, then clearly there was nothing to suggest it couldnt be published.
As such I fear any injunction would fail because it was not clear it couldnt be disclosed.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I Want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Thank you. You have given a clear answer, which appears well informed, which is all that I could expect.

The justanswer website, however, is extremely annoying, and obviously parasitical, almost unusable due to the number of forced offers to buy more expensive services, and I'm aware that you also tried to sell-up.

In future, I will do my utmost to avoid, and will certainly advise my friends to do the same.

This communication is sent in confidence.

Thank you. I can forward the email to the development team if you wish, feedback is certainly appreciated.
If I have answered your question can I ask you to rate my service to you (not the site) before you go today please.

Thanks. Sorry for not closing this down earlier; I thought I'd done so..

The website is really unpleasant: it's soo obviously trying to weasel more money out.. I doubt I'll use it again...

Naturally, as a lawyer, you didn't want to answer my question; you wanted to get me to spend money for you to investigate the extreme unexplored regions of law, and build a case for the international tribunals..

However, for a lawyer, you weren't too painfully unpleasant about this, once I explained that that wasn't going to happen, so I've rated your service as "Good".. (for a lawyer)

(Obviously, if you get hold of someone less hard-bitten, I'd imagine you to wring every penny from them that you could.. You're a lawyer..)

Sorry, again, but... You chose your career...
