Is there a simple way to have very old Usenet posts authored by you, deleted?

Can Usenet posts older than 1 year be deleted? Although Google Groups makes this simple with their archive,
many sites seem to also archive Usenet posts. For certain reasons, I'd like to have some things removed. If it's relevant, I still have access to the original e-mail address used.
-Is there some kind of "headquarters" that will remove your Usenet posts from all archiving sites?
-Must Usenet posts be deleted at the request of the author, or can some authority refuse?
-If someone copied & pasted your information into their post, is that portion removable by some authority?
-At the very least, can you have your name or e-mail information erased from self-authored posts?
