It comes that post are deleted which might be somehow a lose. I don't like to raise the discussion of wether it is good or bad if it comes that way, as every action comes back to the one who is doing so.

But to learn, refelct or even get the understanding of wholesome and unwholesome actions, it might be maybe good to do not delete them in a way, so that it is no more easy to reflect on what was going on.

I had seen, that some forum operator installed a kind of trash-topic for such posts.

Maybe it would be also good to clasify them in comparation with the forum rules which might be broken. That does not only give some support for the writer, but needs also more care and attention for the one who delets a post.
Over all, a post would be still readable and maybe from use for somebody.

The suggsetion does not claim that there is less care or less well-meant intention, but should be a additional possibility to train mindfulness and a source of reflection (for both, the poster and the moderator). Still the bord can be moderated (disarmed/defused) well as ever without putting the mines just away.

How ever, discussions of "it was right" or "it was wrong" should not be forced by it, as deeds are how ever already done.

The result would be that we are aware of trash and trash does not simply dissapear but give possibilities to refect of how kamma goes on.
