Imho it is best if this option is not enabled.
The whole world does not need to know if someone created a lot of pages that are subject
to copyrights or if someone is a vandal. This is a matter of privacy and privacy law is
totally different in e.g. the US and Belgium. Therefore, I do not really like this option.
It is not really necessary anymore, because sysops can now obtain a list of deleted
contributions using the special page [[Special:DeletedContributions]]

Well, we should ask Interiot if he's figured out the legal problem. If not, VVV either
knows the answer or is naive of the earlier takedown.

there was a feature to show deleted edits in Interiot's edits counter

exist? Recently I've noticed another tool on Toolserver doing the same
If that's not a problem, why not to allow reactivating this feature in
