This isn't a bug.

The conversation system works very differently compared to other software, therefore a "Delete" feature is not required. The effective equivalent is to "Leave" a conversation. This removes it from your Inbox, effectively deleting the conversation.

When you delete it from your Inbox, your partner still have it in their Sent folder.
When your partner deletes it then it's gone fully.

Here you Leave, it's deleted from your Inbox, your partner still have it.
When your partner clicks on Leave then it's gone fully.

I think the administrator should be able to delete messages

Developers get money so some features are not included

Some features are not added intentionally lest developers make money
No idea what you mean by the last part.

Conversations work differently to Private Messages on other forums. PMs are individual messages which can be individually kept or deleted and there can be multiple copies of any message (1 copy to every recipient). A conversation is the whole thing, you can't delete individual messages, there's only one copy of the conversation (Not multiple, all in the conversation see the same instance) and you don't delete a conversation, you leave it (it gets deleted when everyone has left the conversation).

So Conversations take up less space than Private Messages as there is only one copy of them.
