Doxxing, pedophilia and harassment are all huge issues on Discord, but the Trust & Safety system requires you to have a message link to report somebody. You can't delete messages or you're literally destroying your evidence. This leaves server staff with the unfortunate dichotomy of either leaving someone's doxxed information or child porn in public to thousands of people for days while they wait for Discord to do anything, or deleting the message meaning there would be no consequence for the person who caused the problem.
Let there be a permission to hide messages, so that the message is not permanently removed, but is also not available for everyone to see. This lets messages be put in holding while Discord staff reviews them.
Right now, a doxxer or raider can out someone's personal information and walk away knowing they can either keep doing it with no consequence or have that information public for a long enough time for it to be spread before they're dealt with. This should not be the case.
