Why are deleted posts still visible on the Discussion Board?

The text of the deleted comment is gone, but there is still a non-editable record in our Discussion Board showing who deleted the post and when it was deleted, as shown below:

Seeing these deletion messages is not helpful and implies that something important may be missing.  Why aren't deleted messages really gone?
Thank you.

If you go into "Student View," do you still see the deletion messages? I haven't checked, but I'm curious whether you do.

As an instructor of a course, personally I want to see some record of what I've done, including whether I've deleted comments in a Discussion. I undestand why, though, we wouldn't want students to see this.
