I would say that you shouldn't erase entire messages as if they were never
sent, but rather replace the body of the messages with a simple "[REMOVED AT
POSTER'S REQUEST]". That way the archives still make sense, we haven't
deleted history as such, and the poster him/herself should be happy because
the actual comments are no longer there.
