Completely deleting previous versions of a post or message

Say you had to send someone an Android debug log. These logs contain a log of private information. You shouldn’t post that URL in public, and if you message it in person the URL or attachment should be deleted soon after.

Even admins or moderators shouldn’t be able to recover that URL or attachment.
If we can’t delete it it will forever remain visible to the sender, and to all admins and moderators. These logs accumulate over time and it’s a lot of sensitive information lingering forever.

How can we not just hide that URL or attachment but actually delete it?

with this PR, it seems possible. i like :slight_smile:

Sounds like something we need indeed. And it should also apply to messages.
Wow this was committed 3 hours ago? Great!
