Somebody posted my writing on his website.

    Also you could use "deleted". – user3169 Sep 10 '14 at 0:16

    There is no well-defined antonym for posted. It would be clearer if you explained what sort of meaning you were trying to express. – snailcar Sep 10 '14 at 0:39

    As snailplane says, your question is unclear. The answer could be downloaded, or it could be deleted. – 200_success Sep 10 '14 at 3:08

I've been an avid content writer for years! This has happened to me several times. And every time, when I see someone posting my content/article on their sites without my permission, I request at Chilling Effects under DMCA to takedown the content. But this word is used only if your case is a case of plagiarism. I think you are looking for this word as you mention that your writing on others website.

A DMCA Takedown is: When content is removed from a website at the request of the owner of the content or the owner of the copyright of the content.

If you are using WordPress, it allows you to post and delete the posts. In that sense, the antonym could be delete; we see a delete button to remove the post.
