I much prefer the idea of storing reported comments. This confirms that
the comment was posted while not keeping deleted comments. Another
option would be to allow a window in which comments can be deleted
without penalty, then disallowing deletion after some threshold. TUs
would still be able to delete comments then, but the users that posted
I don't like the idea of keeping deleted comments not because there's
any useful/private information in them, but out of principle that you
shouldn't keep content from a user that they chose to delete without a
good reason to do so.
