The information they want removed from the forums is someone's name who is not related to the company anymore - he once was the majority shareholder until something showed up on the newspapers and he had to sell his participation in the company to his brother.
Now comes the thing: the "information" they want removed from the forums is just a quote from the New Zealand Companies Office (@CompaniesOffice on Twitter), part of the Ministry of Economic Development.
This information that causes so much trouble is only a copy of the publicly available records for this company, showing that this person was a shareholder and sold his participation back in September 2008. Nothing else. Just a record of ownership and transfer.
Basically they want us to remove a fact stated on a public forum because it doesn't look good - regardless of this fact being publicly available on a government website.
There you go. I replied asking for more information but no answer yet.
