Nor do I and I never saw the movie(s), but I guess, I understand what you want to say (despite my "wrong" mother language). In short: Dave was a super moderator here and when he decided to leave, he mass deleted his posts. A "normal" user like you and me could delete single posts (his/her own ones) and when deleting the first post of a thread started by that user the entire thread was deleted.
Now we are no longer able to delete rubbish, unintended posts etc. because the delete feature is disabled.
