Scuttlebutt has been around for a long time. Deletion has been requested and proposed throughout the project history. It still hasn't delivered. It doesn't help if some future version supports it when there's no adoption of the newer version and no migration path from where we are today to the new stuff.

I used Manyverse for a while but the storage requirement were ridiculous! It would have helped if the app used compression. I didn't share much but followed some creative folks who used it a lot. It would have been fine if it was just their newest stuff but scuttle pulls in their entire archive!
