I recently noted that one is not allowed to see the edit history of their post if it is deleted. e.g. when I click on the edit summary link of this1 self-deleted post of mine I meet the 404 error. The same is true for the community deleted posts. But the mods and high rep users can see them. Is it a bug or a feature added for some purpose?
- If it is a feature than what is its benefit? Why shouldn't the low-rep users see their own posts' history?
- Is it a bug?
1Please do not ask me about why I deleted that post. I posted that when I was new. Since it is a bad answer I deleted it.
