I tried to delete a post for a second time but was met with the following dialog:

deleted flag text

This post has been deleted; deleted posts can't be voted on.

Why on earth does it say "voted"?

If it helps you pick, though I posted first, I only had that link because Jon gave it to me in one of my old questions – Grace Note Apr 23 '10 at 14:14

A delete action counts as a vote. In fact, most actions on the site count as votes. See here for a complete list.

So, trying to delete would be casting a vote, which you can't do since it is deleted.
