5 years ago this question was asked: Deleted answers should get sorted at the very bottom of the answer list, which was marked as . However this doesn't seem to be the case, at least not on Arqade. Take this question for example:

The answer section showing 3 deleted answers out of 5 continuation of above


When viewing the answers in the 'oldest' tab (or even the votes tab when I had not voted it up), the deleted answers are taking precedence over Nick T's answer.

Is this still considered a bug, or was there a change in the policies of how we view/handle deleted answers?

    As Emarkul answered - that is due to how you are sorting the answers. – Oded Jul 28 '15 at 8:47

You're sorting by oldest first, which doesn't factor in answer deletion.

Try sorting by "votes" or "active," and it'll show up with deleted content at the bottom.

    I've done that, which is why I said: "When viewing the answers in the 'oldest' tab (or even the votes tab when I had not voted it up), the deleted answers are taking precedence over Nick T's answer" – Robotnik Jul 28 '15 at 0:31

    @Robotnik Votes tab is not reproducible for me anywhere I can see deleted answers. Oldest tab is definitely intentional. – user206222 Jul 28 '15 at 0:52

    Perhaps it is only prevalent on older sites: I can reproduce it on Arqade which is the only place I have >10k – Robotnik Jul 28 '15 at 1:16
