Though certainly reasonable, it's not obvious to me that deletion should outweigh acceptance and votes for sorting pruposes. Are you sure this isn't by design? –  blahdiblah Sep 26 '12 at 22:52

Deleted answers are always below the undeleted ones regardless of votes (even deleted accepted answers). This is the first time I've seen it the other way. –  Mysticial Sep 26 '12 at 22:53
    
Did you try refreshing the page? –  kiamlaluno Sep 26 '12 at 23:05

@kiamlaluno Yep. And if I view it while logged out, the answer disappears as usual. So it doesn't appear to break anything for sub-10ks. –  Mysticial Sep 26 '12 at 23:06

It appears there was a time when deleting an answer didn't remove that checkmark - and this answer was deleted then.

Undeleting it and re-deleting it causes it to sort correctly at the bottom, sans checkmark.

I just realized that the deletion date was before the review-beta queues. So what deleted it? –  Mysticial Sep 26 '12 at 23:56
    
No idea. Lost in the mists of time, no doubt. –  Shog9 Sep 27 '12 at 0:00
