No, because there is no consensus to change this function. This is not a bug, this is a platform feature that is working as designed. It affects everyone on Huddler, not just OCN, and the vast majority of partners do not want their user's post counts lowered if a thread is deleted. Since it's not a bug it's not my arena to file a ticket for, that would be a discussion to have with the MSP, with the aforementioned caveat that it would not just effect OCN and that should be taken into account.
We already discussed it last meeting; admin said that it wasn't the way it should be set up for OCN. So it's defintiely not working right on OCN's end, even if it is from your end.
