You can't delete your items so that:
- people wouldn't lose items that the creator made in case the creator decides to delete their products;
- when something breaks, you can fix it;
- when someone else gets access to your account for whatever reason wouldn't be able to delete your items either for malicious reasons or for the lulz;
- people that will regret their decision to delete their items would not go crying to the staff demanding their things back;
- thieves or UFI creators wouldn't be able to delete their items before getting caught.

And there are probably many other good reasons why this should not be a thing.

If you delete it, then people who bought it would also lose it. This means IMVU would have to give them a refund. And the refund money goes from your pockets. What if you have 0 credits and they had to refund. You'd be at a negative balance and the money would come out of IMVU's pocket.

This, and, do you know how many times over the years I've seen creators threaten to trash their catalogs because they're upset at IMVU? Which, btw, is insane, because you'd be punishing your customers, not IMVU.
