Email to author when deleting thread

In 8.5 there use to be the option to email the author of a thread that you are about to delete to advise them.  I cannot find any information on this feature in 9.x.  Is it still available or was the option removed?

Example from v8.5...

  • This feature of thread deletion was removed in favor of abuse management. Abuse management provides the author with a route to appeal the action within the abuse management workflow with a similar end result (thread deletion). When a moderator wants to just remove a thread, the delete option does this more quickly.
