Auto deleting posts removes replied-to posts

I just came across another post that is a reply to a post that is older than 30 days which has been deleted, which is pretty confusing.

Would it be an idea to have the “remove posts older than X” only apply to posts that do not have replies?

That would also allow for bug fixes and feature requests that take longer dan 30 days to get addressed and resolved.

I’m OK with the status quo here. If the post is good, it needs likes. If it isn’t, it’ll get removed.

But the post is auto removed after 30 days regardless of how much likes it got… right?
