In principle it may seem fair to allow members to delete their posts as they deem necessary, but the end result can be the complete trashing of a thread due to missing content.
Secondly, posts are often quoted in replies by other members which the original poster has no rights to edit.
So, IMHO any practical post deletion needs to be done with the approval of the moderating staff.
