Closes #9766

This PR adds a new setting where the admin can choose what action to perfom with the user's messages when an user is removed.

The possible options are: Keep (don't remove any message), Delete (Removes all messages) and Unlink (Change the userId of all messages to the user).

Can a flag be set on the message that this message has changed owner/sender? That way future confusion can be cleared up. Obviously the original creator information can't be stored, but a flag saying this didn't originally come from the user and instead came from someone else.
