Deletions, reinstatements, what's going on?

What’s going on here over the last few days? Some members have decided to delete their posts. Which leads to old threads being bumped.

I find that a shame and annoying, but would ultimately accept their right to delete their posts,if they wish.

But then I’ve noticed @Liam taking it upon himself to restore posts. This leads to the thread being bumped up yet again, which is even more annoying.

But it’s also evident that posts are restored that the post authors have decided to delete. This I find inappropriate. I appreciate that the license used when posting on FTT almost certainly permits this from a legal perspective, but still: if an author deletes their own posts, then surely the forum owner ought to respect this, except in the most unusual circumstances.

What do the others think?
