Removed from public view

There's no way of doing that in the ACP.

You can however run a query to delete all entries in the xf_post table which have a message_state of deleted.

The users have the option to delete there own posts. I was just cleaning up so there should be no working attachments in the deletes anyway.

But to answer you question i just don't know.
Sorry to bump this, but I just followed it and also had to run the following as well. Otherwise, where the "removed form public view" posts were the only thing in the thread, the threads stayed behind still.

DELETE from xf_thread WHERE discussion_state='deleted'
