One of the few things we know about the automatic ban mechanism is that it penalizes for self-deletes of content less than 30 days old.
While generously applying my daily quota of delete votes on horrible questions, it occurred to me that I might also be penalizing the user in some way. I could understand why this would be a good thing, but it makes me slightly uneasy.
My understanding of the self-delete penalty is that it targets users that post bad content, delete it, then try reposting it. If that's the real intent, then I wouldn't imagine that non-self-deletes would count in the same way. On the other hand, if you post something so terrible that the community or a diamond-mod decide it's not even worth keeping, that's gotta count, right?
Thus the question: do community deletes and moderator deletes count towards the auto-ban mechanism in the same way that self-deletes do?
