Comment (by jmdodd):

 There is no concept of having a spammed/deleted topic in bbPress 2 where
 the replies are still visible. Spammed and trashed topics in bbPress 2
 will result in a public 404 (for non-moderators) rather than displaying
 any valid replies.

 When I wrote the conversion script, I tried to keep as much public data as
 possible. Your initial reply to this topic was bumped up to be the topic,
 since the topic post had a deleted status. This is not a particularly
 graceful solution, but it is in line with the way spamming/deleting topics
 worked in bbPress 1. I checked, and the public view of this topic is the
 same as it was on ru.forums.wordpress.org. This method at least guarantees
 that anything that was public will remain public.

 Deleted and moderated topics are not coming over for the following
 - Topic tags are only imported for published topics; this is eliminating a
 ton of topic tag spam.
 - Deleted/moderated topics (and posts) far outnumber those that are
 actually good. For instance, one forum has about one million topics, of
 which only five thousand are published.
 - In many cases, moderating (spamming) a topic was used instead of
 deleting it, so there is no way to tell whether a topic is moderated
 because it is spam, or it was moderated because the poster was flagged for
 moderation. In both of these cases, the end result is the same for public

 The last week of all deleted/moderated topics and posts is included in the
 upgrade to avoid leaving behind anything that was accidentally spammed or
