    If you respond within any thread, that is a "post". You can delete a "response" without impacting thread itself. Now if a Mod closes a thread, only then is the response "trapped for life", unless the thread itself is deleted.

    Others may react to that 'post' and if the posts are removed, their reactions would become meaningless :-)

    But after a while it's mostly against the rules to react to those threads, unless you're talking about quotes.....

    You're running the risk of making nonsense of the threads in which you've deleted comments.

    Please stop doing this.

    Whether you are trying to only delete "irrelevant" posts or not, it is still manipulating your post count.
