Obviously, because the things said in comments may have expired. A
comment written one year ago saying "I get a crash in Wine 1.1.14" is
only confusing to users visiting appdb. A howto on getting a game or
program to work in Wine 0.95.x has no meaning if the application has
platinum score in Wine 1.1.24.
If you meant, why should they be deleted instead of kept for reference;
there could be an archive, but currently they are deleted, afaik.
