That SEEMS like an extreme case, that Mark would not likely do except in extreme circumstances.  The individual member is not a paying subscriber, after all, and it probably takes some effort on Mark's part to locate and delete their old messages.  Unless there is a legal requirement, I have to think that Mark wouldn't do this just because a former member asked him to do it.

There used to be a lot of history (in the USA at least) about publisher's rights and responsibilities, well before the Internet age.  I don't know how much of modern law leverages off of it or departs from it.
