for mods and pseudo-mods (10k rep users) we now sort deleted answers to the bottom. All other user classes are unaffected.
I assume by "unaffected" he means "they can't see deleted answers, so we don't even check". This isn't completely true -- I can see my own deleted answers, and they get shuffled with the other zero-vote answers. Shouldn't they be dropped to the bottom for all users, not just mods?
