How does deleting work? What can cause a post to be deleted, and what does that actually mean?

In my question, on the main U&L site: Check if SSH is Enabled or Disabled in Solaris 11, I have deleted my own answer, but it hasn't disappeared. Why has it not gone? It has gone red though.

I am sorry if this is a duplicate, but I can't see this type of question asked anywhere else.

It is gone (that's why it is red), but you are allowed to still see it, and edit or undelete it if you so wish.

See How does deleting work? What can cause a post to be deleted, and what does that actually mean? What are the criteria for deletion?:

Self-deleted answers can be viewed, edited, and undeleted by their original authors.
