How is this possible?

As far as I know, Lemmy doesn't allow the deletion of content. https://www.reddit.com/r/privacy/comments/1b6g219/psa_you_cant_delete_photos_uploaded_to_lemmy_so/

You should however be able to overwrite your posts. So when you delete them, change every field to random nonsense.

I think part of the issue is that you can undo the deletion of your own posts, which is a nice feature to have.

Maybe what we need is:

  • hide: does what "delete" does now
  • delete: with a warning that the action is irreversible

Add in a warning when posting or commenting that hiding/deleting may not federate
