Wiki: Is it customary for users to remove comments from their own talk page?

Hi,

on OSM wiki, is it customary for users to remove comments from their own talk page?

Like here:

I’m not concerned about this particular deletion, but I’m wondering if this practice is approved. In more serious cases, this could obscure valuable information about a user’s history from others.

I’m thinking of vanadalism or other misbehaviour like edit wars, ignoring guidelines, etc. Cases may be handled differently depending on whether a user has a history of similar incidents; and their talk page might be a valuable record of their history.
