Oh , if only it were that simple.
Partly as I said in my earlier email, the CT's talk about data you have
added, not data which still exists.
But more importantly your contributions would still remain in all the planet
dumps, so I presume you'd be relying on the "database people" to remove the
data from them as well. Probably a time consuming task, but potentially
do-able. But then there are all the copies of the planet dumps held on
other peoples computers. Should the "database people" ask for all of them
to be returned so they can be cleaned?
You see data you add to OSM cant easily be removed.
