Deleting a comment (mine) shouldn't count as a comment vote

After I submitted a comment to a question I discovered a couple of other comments had been posted before mine. One of those made much the same point so I deleted my comment and tried to upvote the other. When I tried to upvote I got the message "You can only upvote a comment every 5 seconds" or something to that effect.

I don't think deleting my own comment should trigger the 5-second timer.

    I've always found that a bit odd as well, but not odd enough to worry about it. I usually count to five and try again. – Michael Todd Mar 14 '12 at 17:55
