@dredmorbius this raises an interesting question: does the delete function truly delete? Do delete actions propagate to federated instances?

@ennenine Delete messages send a delete /request/ to remote servers.

A convention of fidelity (trust) between servers might remove access to servers which /don't/ delete messages on request. But it's still possible for copies to be retained /somewhere/.

Norton's Law: All data tends to deleted, or public.
