I have admin status on the IA and can "make dark". Send me your list of mov= ies off-list (raymondmk at gmail dot com) and I will make the files invisib= le from the IA. The nodes on Ourmedia you can delete yourself by going to t= he node and clicking edit whereafter you click delete. We at Ourmedia hope= to make it easier for people to make content 'go dark'. The reason we do i= t like this, btw, is that it is safer for us to just make the files not ava= ilable than to physically delete them. I have been contacted by others who= hosted "FreePlay" music on IA and want it taken down after they heard abou= t the FreePlay policy, so I guess your message to this group regarding this= has been very helpful to a lot of people, Erin.
