How does deleting work? What can cause a post to be deleted, and what does that actually mean?

I would like to know what happens when questions are deleted. Are they moved to another table (such as QuestionsDeleted), or is a flag just sett on its row?

All posts are soft deleted. – hims056 Oct 26 '12 at 14:45

When a post is deleted, it is still there, but only viewable to people who have the privilege of seeing deleted questions or are moderators, and they can vote to "un"delete the post as well if they want to.

Thanks for the answer. But more about infrastructure and how it has been designed I should ask here? – Luccas Oct 26 '12 at 14:48
@Luccas seeing several comments and this answer read your question the same, I suggest you edit your question to be more specific – psubsee2003 Oct 26 '12 at 15:02
