Recently I figured out deleting a post is really a soft delete and it is still in the DB, unless of course there are enough votes to make a hard delete. I'm curious if comments are a soft or hard delete. You don't get a vote to delete option either.

Finally, are soft deleted items included in the data dump?

From Comment: comments are a soft delete...
