A lot of forums have this. It's because TSR threads are not only for discussion, they're for reference. Imagine you're trying to solve some obscure problem, you google it, and it returns a TSR thread of other people discussing the problem. If someone had posted a solution but since deleted their account, the solution would be lost.
Similarly, conversations on threads would not make sense if any of the posts had been removed due to accounts being deleted.
The obvious solution would be to make each post anon after deleting the account, so conversations still made sense. In the meantime, just request a permaban.

Most forums work on the basis that once you post something, it is their property. The majority of forums don't allow it so TSR shouldn't be any different. People should just be more aware of what they're signing up to.
