Probably hats. I've seen a lot of strange undelete votes, and I blamed it on the hat you get for casting a reopen vote. –  Makoto Dec 31 '13 at 8:28
    
Funny that external crawler/copycat was fast enough to index it before it got deleted! :) –  Shadow Wizard Dec 31 '13 at 8:44
    
OP even had the audacity to edit and add more goop to the post ... stackoverflow.com/posts/20714968/revisions –  StuartLC Dec 31 '13 at 13:16

Probably. As long as it wasn't deleted by a moderator, any 10k user, as well as the OP, can vote to undelete the post. The OP likely pushed the button thinking the post would be instantly undeleted and was disappointed to see that's not how the system works.
