These posts are deleted because the person is posting while they are blocked, which is against the site guidelines. That's the only time (that I know of) when posts are routinely deleted. If they had been made after the block had been over, they would remain in the archives like any other post, even if they were uncivil and resulted in a new block. I don't believe that the reason the posts were deleted has anything to do with the content, but rather that they were made while the poster was already blocked.
Hope that clears up that particular confusion there.
