After I wrote a not-so-good answer, I decided to delete it. At the time of deletion, there was a pending suggested edit which I didn't bother to check.
Assuming I want to salvage my answer before I undelete it, I desperately want to edit it to counter the unwarranted and anonymous down votes.
Clicking the edit link doesn't work though. I'm greeted with an error:
I'm not interested in suggested edits from some anonymous editor; I want to salvage my post.
This is related to Suggested edit on deleted answer still reviewable, but that is from a reviewer point of view, which I'm really not interested in, nor care about.
Is my only option to undelete the answer, get a few more down votes, reject the edit and delete again? Or am I at the mercy of reviewers to review that edit I'm not going to use anyway. There must be a better way, if only for OP's.
Can this be fixed?
