Initially I was unable to unfollow deleted posts from the Following tab in my profile.

That seemed to been fixed recently so I was cleaning out the deleted posts when I encountered one that would not unfollow.

Conversion pdf document which includes tables to csv file using python or any other langaue

Turns out the deleted post is locked since it was deleted as Spam.

This was fixed at the end of last week. You should be able to follow or unfollow locked posts both from the post itself and from your user profile.

Thanks for the report!

    @pkamb It's locked with the "historical significance" lock which prevents most interactions.
