Yesterday, I answered an old SO question of mine with the workaround I eventually used. I originally put this as an answer, but then realised it would be more appropriate as a comment on the question, as it's not really an answer at all.
So after adding the same info as a comment, I tried to delete this answer, but it just sits there with a red background saying "deleted". I was wondering if it will ever actually be removed from the site? Do I have to wait for it to timeout or something? Or does a moderator have to get involved?
