This question already has an answer here:
EDIT: Let me break it down to something even simpler.
I understand that this is a status-bydesign bug. I also understand that the deletion of a comment is implemented as a vote for deletion. The only thing I cannot get my head around is:
- Why can we not change the text that is displayed?
- Is it because it would be too cumbersome to make this change implementation-wise?
- Is it just low-priority?
The second and third question are simple yes-or-no questions that I think I can expect an answer to. I apologize if I missed something important.
I recently deleted two of my comments and got the following warning:
Why is deleting my comment called a "comment vote"? Now, please read on before flagging it as a duplicate...
This is the same question as this one: Deleting a comment (mine) shouldn't count as a comment vote. But unfortunately, nothing was done to fix the bug.
So, perhaps my question is rather: Why was this bug not addressed so far?
It has been around for a couple of years now and I'd really like to see a change to this misleading pop-up text.
N.B. I am not complaining about the time limit of 5 seconds. I am complaining about the wording.
