Allow asker to delete migrated question

My question has been migrated to another site. Because it wasn't the right fit for the first site - it got downvoted. If the question gets migrated, why is the old question with the old score still hanging around like a bad smell on the first site?

What can I do about it?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    The reason it leaves the old question is to serve as a "pointer" to the question on the new site. The question "stubs" on the original site are automatically deleted after 30 days. You can delete them yourself before then, if you so choose. No harm will come in doing so. – Cody Gray Jul 29 '11 at 0:48
