I posted a question which was given downvotes because as it was, was found to be more appropriate for Code Review rather than Stack Overflow. I've tried to edit the format for it to be appropriate for Stack Overflow (please do give me feedback if there's anything more I should do though for this question or if it's not practical to repair it to an appropriate question), but actually the reason I'm posting on Meta is I got a weird warning when trying to delete it.
The warning was that I could be barred from asking questions if I keep deleting questions for which an answer has been submitted (this would have been my first instance, btw). In this case the only answer added was my own. Even when I temporarily deleted the answer, I still got this warning when I tried to delete the question. So is this a bug? It seems to me the reason for penalising a person for deleting a question with an answer is that the answer took up the time of another user, and so you've wasted their time. If the answer is your own, then that rationale wouldn't apply. Or I'm overlooking a reason why a penalty should stand for deleting a question in which the only answer posted is the original poster's?
