This has been an issue I’ve had with Discord for a while. Messages and media, both in-server and in DMs remaining after account deletion can be very dangerous, mainly because said person can’t do a single thing about getting rid of those messages and they could potentially contain personal information or just things people don’t feel comfortable keeping public. Not only am I dealing with this, but a friend of mine was doxxed by her ex 3 months after getting rid of her account because of exactly this. I’ve heard this would “disrupt conversation flow” but I honestly don’t think that compares in importance to an actual secure account deletion and ensured anonymity. I, and many others over the years have felt very helpless in these situations and there’s been nothing done about it for years, not even a valid explanation on why they do nothing about it. Please, for the sake of safety, implement this feature.
