Deleted content should be treated differently from content that never existed. WordPress could be enhanced by returning a 410 Gone response to requests for posts or pages that have been deleted.

As I currently envision the solution, bits of old content (like a slug) would have to remain in the database after deletion.

Using WordPress 2.8.5; could not find any references to this in pre-existing Trac tickets in Core.

  • Version changed from 2.8.5 to 2.9

I don't think it's worth storing old data in the DB just for this.

At most, 410 could be sent for posts and comments that are currently in the trash.

Replying to scribu:

Agreed. I think this is good plugin territory.
