Always give your participants the option to delete their data, and actually delete it when they ask you to.

I agree. The idea of soft-deletes irks me. My personal data isn't a line in a log file which one would wanna keep for as long as possible.

I created an account, said my name is Rexford. Now I'm leaving, and say, delete that data, and then soft-deletes it?

It's so crazy of an approach not sure why it still exists.
