Question
Can a person delete, transfer to the (computer’s) recycle bin or trashcan or otherwise eliminate email and other computer generated electronic media with references to G-d? This would also included word documents not yet printed but saved on a hard drive (like an old draft).
Answer
It's not real writing and therefore not a problem
