Right now, as soon a question is closed the delete link shows up, even though it won't be eligible for deletion for 2 days yet. This link should be hidden until the 2 day wait is over.

    @John: I don't think it would be that big of a deal since only 10K+ rep users can vote to delete. I would hope that by then they'd know better. – squillman Oct 31 '09 at 19:05
