Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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.
