I asked a question with genuine good intention but overlooked the possible endless debate and flame-warring issues (because I am not the kind of guy to get into them).
The question is getting several downvotes and loss of reputation points which I obviously do not want, but I cannot delete the question for 2 days.
I realise I can edit the question to avoid the downvotes (which I have tried to do) but it is now obviously not the same question as it was before and the comments and downvotes no longer reflect it anyway. So in my view, as the question is not salvageable, why force questions to remain for 2 days which the asker does not want to keep and thus subject them to unwanted downvoting?
In my view, if a question is closed as non-constructive, the asker should be able to delete it to avoid more downvotes and damage to reputation.
Is there no way to get a question deleted before 2 days?
