I'd be inclined to leave the delete option...

Maybe if a member goes to delete a story then a pop up box "are you sure you wouldn't prefer to 'hide' it?" option could come up or something - the same way it informs that you can deactivate your account, rather than deleting it...

I like the idea of the site asking about hiding the story instead of deleting, but to take away the delete button is wrong. I've had a few stories rejected as they violated Lush's policy. These I did delete as I refused to change them (my choice and I didn't realize they violated the site's story policy). I also had one that I had to split into two parts because it was too big (this was easily done). But, if at some point, I wish to pull a story, I should have the option to delete it if I so choose. I may be disappointed if an author pulls a story, but if he/she makes such a decision, that is their choice, not mine, and as a reader I must respect their decision.

The reason an author pulls a story is their reason and not for us to question.
