Support, but mods should still be able to see the history, even if regular users can't because of your second point.

For sure.

Perhaps new members could be restricted from this feature until a certain time after registering? That way brigades, trolls, fash, etc. could not hide as easily. I don't know.

This feature is a must from a privacy perspective! If it's possible within the framework I would like to suggest three options: publicly visible, totally private, and only visible for subscribers of shared forums.

We're on a site with content freely available on the Internet... If you're really so worried about people seeing the things you post, why post at all?

systematic profiling

Like a bot auto-banning you for saying something, or a person judging you for saying something?
Either way, I'm now in support of a hide comments, posts, etc option. People will figure out ways to hide their information if they really want to-- on reddit, bots are used that modify all of their comments. That kind of thing can ruin threads and break up conversations for future readers.
I'd rather have an undisturbed comment chain.

I think this should be the case when you're a new user viewing a profile, but if you have 50 posts/comments or more, you should be able to view the entire post history. That will keep reactionary doxers and cops from profiling people because they won't realize there are more comments than what they see.

But regular users will want to find old posts and comments and follow their favorite user's convos.
