One needs to read entire man page,
someone else needs to sort it,

anyway, once I got to what appeared to be the bottom (alphabetically) I 
assumed that the remove option was the option I needed to remove it from the 
machine, and closed the window.

You need to use "apt-get --purge remove" for the config files to be
removed. It's a feature rather than a limitation.
