Why do so many people delete their posts?

It seems like everytime I post in a thread, a few hours later it moves back a page because people delete their posts. I'm just curious why :)

Many reasons.  When you want to leave the site, you may not want to leave a trail of incriminating posts.  You may want to get something out of your unread replies.  You may think it's cool to d-dub.

Oops.

Some trails extend beyond the bounds of the net.

They have quite the 20/20 hindsight vision and see that a lot of what they wrote is barnacle! ;D
Excuse me, I just noticed you noticing me and I just wanted to give you notice that I noticed you too.
