How to write a request to delete content on Scamwatcher?

Scamwatcher is a content host: it is a site that offers the possibility to Internet users to put online writings without any moderation. This system is particularly conducive to freedom of expression and is commonly found on social networks (Facebook, Twitter, blog comments, etc.). The content host therefore provides a means that Internet users are free to use and is not responsible for the content posted online. However, it happens that Internet users abuse their freedom to post content online that may be illegal. In this case, it is possible to inform the host so that it proceeds to their deletion. The French law, itself based on a European directive, describes in a very precise way the data to be communicated to the host so that this operation is carried out. This is the paragraph 5 of article 6 of the LCEN (law of confidence in the digital economy).
