I admit I posted a bad question and when I try to delete it I get the message "To allow for possible reopening, you may delete the message in 2 days". What's the point of this?


Closed questions are not dead, they can be re-opened if the community deems that the closing was incorrect or if they are improved, and it makes sense to allow for some time for enough people to examine it before you can delete it.
