According to this answer

"Deleted" users have their display name denormalized, their account deleted, and all of their negatively rated posts will be deleted. Anything with a score of 0 or higher is retained with their "ghost" user. This is primarily for scenarios like a user requesting their account for deletion, and it has some degree of reversibility.

If I request Account deletion, negatively rated questions of mine will get auto-deleted even if there is highly voted answers?

Is this hypothetical or are you planning on deleting your account? –  alex May 15 '11 at 6:05
@alex, I am a bit serious on this case. But that will depend on correct answer on this question and if moderators stick to reject my question delete request. –  YOU May 15 '11 at 6:10
Why leave? I wanted to leave about a year ago, but I decided to just not participate for a while (a month) and see what happens. In the end, I couldn't sit away. Don't do things in a rush, just because you're angry right now; cool down and think it through. –  alex May 15 '11 at 6:13
@alex, it's really annoying that you get unwanted comments and answers on questions that you can't delete .... –  YOU May 15 '11 at 6:23
Ignore them; do they really bother you that much? Or ask for the questions to be disassociated with your account, if possible. It's a less extreme solution. –  alex May 15 '11 at 6:26
@alex, if you keep getting answers or comments, you can't ignored (at least me) –  YOU May 15 '11 at 6:27
If you're worried about notifications on answers, why not simply delete that answer? Why do you have to resort to deleting your entire account? This seems like a bit of a drastic step... –  Cody Gray May 15 '11 at 6:41
@Cody, because it is a question, I cannot delete it myself. –  YOU May 15 '11 at 6:42
@Delete: Then ask for deletion of the question please! (And sorry, I left a comment at that question, too.) –  Hendrik Vogt May 15 '11 at 12:07
@Hendrik, my delete request got rejected -… –  YOU May 16 '11 at 4:26
@YOU: Hmm. At least it's anonymized. But there are still lots of comments of YOU (and responses to those) hanging around. Maybe it would suffice if a moderator deletes those comments? –  Hendrik Vogt May 16 '11 at 10:46

Account deletions are kind of a rare case, so this isn't particularly common.

But yes -- in a normal account delete:

  • questions or answers with a score of -1 or lower are deleted
  • questions or answers with a score of 0 or better are retained

This does not seem like an ideal situation, if there well-rated answers for a negatively-rated question... seems like it would be better to let humans decide in that case? –  SamB May 15 '11 at 22:50
