[Feature request] Keep admin log of sent SMS

If a user deletes his sent SMS logs, they are gone for everybody, but are still kept in database. I suppose the flag_deleted field should be used in admin listings, but I see no code for that.

It was meant for audit, done via MySQL console/GUI. Unfortunately I have no plan to build the UI to manage deleted data (flag_deleted not just in SMS logs).

Just wondering:

Why allow users to delete sent messages from log? If there is a reason, I think an entry marked “deleted / redacted” should still be visible, otherwise users may question the logs if they forget they deleted in the first place.

I wrote the code long ago, I chose to not actually delete data (for example SMS data). Flag it instead for backups, or audits, or trash system, or anything you can think of later.

We are going to make changes to just allow admins to delete messages. Flag_deleted was a good idea, thanks.
