The following question has just been deleted, along with all of the comments and answers:
The question may not have been very good, but there was quite a bit of good content in the comments and answers from other people. Now it's all gone, because for some reason the person who asked the question wanted everything deleted.
I don't think that's right, and (if memory serves) I don't think it was possible in the original version of this forum. The original question should have been edited to improve the quality.
What do you think?

Ideally, yes I agree. If there is useful information on a question or answer, it should be left around. In this case, however, the customer asked us to remove the question because some sensitive data was inadvertently included in the posting. Since prior revisions can be seen even if the question was edited, the only way to remove the data entirely is to delete it.
Note that the user who asked the question cannot delete it once an answer is posted, only an administrator can.
