Pressured by whom?
It might be a good idea to move the archives to a server in a country that has different laws concerning full 
Say for instance the Netherlands (where the non-US archives of debian reside)

We have come under some pressure to delete part of the 
information from the message disclosing the Kerberos 4 
vulnerability recently posted.

We would like to publicly announce our position in 
regards to the material within the Full Disclosure 
mailing list archives.

We strongly feel that:

1. The archives reflect the entire mail traffic of the
   list, which is composed of individual messages sent
   by many different individuals. 

2. The contents of these messages have become a matter 
   of public record once they were distributed to both
   those who are subscribed to the mailing list, and 
   mirrored by various sites who also archive the mailing 

3. It would violate the editorial integrity of the 
   archives and would also demonstrate a measure of
   editorial control over the content of the archives 
   that we are not prepared to exercise.

4. That it is pointless to "delete a message" since
   the message contents are already widely disseminated, 
   cached, stored, and otherwise ingested worldwide.

To summarize, we are sorry that we cannot comply with
any requests to delete the message in question, or any
other for that matter.
