What's Up With the Account Deletions?

In todays world, people will

In todays world, people will sometimes search for things you've said in the past even years ago. Cases of this are becoming too common in the news. Sometimes humorous or innocent things get twisted and can affect your job or your life, or perhaps if you're ever involved in either side of a lawsuit or trying to get an apartment.
