XF 1.2 ACP > Spam Cleaner defaults > Delete conversations by spammer

Does this hard or soft delete conversations - or does it depend on the permissions of the moderator/admin who runs it?

I'd prefer to soft delete them so we have them for reference/recovery (in case the cleaner is run accidentally on an account or we have a dispute) - so if it's hard then I'll untick it.

Most likely, it leaves the conversation from all users so it ends up being a hard delete. I'd have to look in the code to verify that.

There is no such thing as a soft deleted conversation so physically removed.
