Is it possible to sink my own deleted answer to the bottom?

Sometimes, in the case of a vote tie, the deleted answer will be ranked at the top (for example, for this question I deleted one of my duplicated answer), as shown below:

It is best if you can always assign the lowest priority ( regardless of votes) to the deleted answers

Some time ago, answers sort by accepted (if not self-accepted), score, and deleted questions at the end. Apologies this question was never updated, going through and leaving updated info on these now.

Since only you (and moderators) can see the deleted answers, this really only affects your view, correct?

And 10K+ users. –  Jon Skeet Sep 23 '09 at 6:35
Of course, 10k users have probably implicitly accepted the quirks... –  Marc Gravell Sep 23 '09 at 11:41
I thought (erroneously?) that >10k rep == moderator? –  warren Sep 23 '09 at 15:34
Moderator = one who has a little ♦ after their name. 10k+ users have more privileges than lower-rep users, but are still limited. –  mmyers Sep 23 '09 at 18:11
aha. That clears that up :) –  warren Sep 24 '09 at 7:34

I agree, but so few people see them that I don't think it matters.
