This is a follow-up post of Answer not deleted after six "Recommend Deletion". In the linked question, an LQ review has ended with six "Recommend Deletion". However, the post has not been automatically removed from the site since it had a score of +1 throughout the review. As a result, Prof. Carl Mummert emphasised the importance of down-voting the review target to be deleted in the comments below the accepted answer of the linked Math.Meta.SE question. Allowing up/down-voting during review would facilitate the removal of such posts.
Update: review target deleted via votes
Edit in response to comments:
- Add a downvote option in the VLQ review only suggests downvoting, while this question also suggests upvoting.
- My question also applies to Close reviews, in which great questions have popped up. The linked meta question is only about LQ reviews.
Since @ShadowWizard has specifically mentioned LQ reviews, I would like to bring up this one in which a high-quality answer receives two "(recommend) deletions" and one downvote (viewable to 2k users) from high-rep users who don't know the field. Upvotes can protect such answers from disappearing.
Once we see good answers, we should upvote them. That's part of the SE mechanism. The suggestions of this post helps users to do so without leaving the review.
