Steam adds "deleted posts" back in search results. Reaction.

I left this comment on the mysterious "deleted thread":

Well. This is a "deleted thread", apparently. I executed two identical searches on steamcommunity .com, appended "&include_deleted=1" to the end of the search query URL for one of them, and compared the returned 8 pages' worth of results. This thread was only on one of the two returned search result lists. Found on page 7. Meaning it was only revealed by the presence of my added include_deleted=1 keyword/argument. Either a database fluke (I did not repeat the experiment) or I truly managed to find one of these fabled "deleted posts".

I wonder why I have access to this feature. Am I moderator? Isn't it dangerous to keep deleted posts? They could contain all kinds of illegal material.

Here are the filters that show up:
[Results for "%" ×] [Including deleted posts ×]

p.s.: You misspelled Link (as "Linak"). Otherwise good post. Not sure why it was deleted. Unless it's a copy-paste?

And why not triple post just to say I saved a copy of this response, in case this thread gets really deleted

Linak [sic] to my website where the backup is at:
