Suppose that I answer a question. In my answer, I link to another question or answer on the same Stack Exchange site. Then, I delete my answer.

It seems that, even upon deletion of the answer, the linked question or answer still shows up on the Linked sidebar. If this is indeed correct, is this desirable?

    The cache is very long-lived, 30 days (!). If you have example of a linked post that appears even more than 30 days after deletion please add to the question and I'll reopen. Apr 4, 2021 at 17:25
