I flagged this answer as "low quality".

In my flag overview, the post shows up as deleted:

However, it clearly isn't. Also, my manual delete vote doesn't seem to register.

Is this a bug, or was the answer undeleted later?

Hmm, according to the comment you left, you've tried casting a delete vote. I just did the same thing, delete(2) appeared, and then upon refresh, I just see delete. Not sure why this post is refusing to be deleted... Do you see a vote counter? –  Cody Gray May 6 '11 at 10:58
    
@Cody nope, I don't see a counter at all. Strange. –  Pëkka May 6 '11 at 11:17
    
I flagged your answer without reading it, and maliciously gained flag weight, heheh, :P –  YOU May 6 '11 at 11:29
    
@YOU we could start a flag weight ring! We would become the heaviest guys around within a few days. Oh boy! –  Pëkka May 6 '11 at 11:30
    
LoL, and will get abuse badges next day. heheh :P –  YOU May 6 '11 at 11:32

According to revisions list, OP deleted and undeleted back, I am not sure this reset the flag or not though.

Ah-ha! So it was community deleted, and the OP undeleted. Thanks, didn't think of looking in the revision history. –  Pëkka May 6 '11 at 10:50
    
@Pekka, btw, your flag is registered as valid or invalid or still under review? I am just curious! –  YOU May 6 '11 at 10:51
    
it seems to have been marked as valid. I was able to flag again but that flag isn't showing up in my history. –  Pëkka May 6 '11 at 10:53

The answer was undeleted later.

The revisions page for the post confirms that it was deleted by Gordon and Roshan. And then it was later undeleted by Roshan.

Apparently this doesn't reset the flag page.

There are two ways in which your flag history can tell you that a post has been deleted.

  • “♦ Post Deleted” means that at some point after your flag, the action of deleting the post happened. (“deleted” is used in an active mode.)
  • The post title appearing in a gray background means that the post is currently in the deleted state. (“deleted” is used as an ajective.)

If you see “Post Deleted” on a non-deleted post, it means the post was deleted then restored (which could happen legitimately if the author replaced the previously bad content by a worthwhile answer).
