# What does “Repeated Deletion of Answered Questions” mean in the post-deletion prompt?

After trying to delete a post, by clicking the delete link under it, the final deletion prompt mentioned "Repeated Deletion of Answered Questions".

What exactly does this mean? Could I be banned from asking questions just for clearing out trash / malformed questions that received answers that are just of the form "Your premise is wrong" or Duplicates? I could maybe understand the virtue of leaving the former up so anyone else caught in the same moment of confusion / idiocy can learn what's going wrong, but why the latter? Surely deleting duplicates wouldn't harm the site.

• Could you perhaps link to some examples (even if deleted, >1ok's can see them anyway)? – AccidentalFourierTransform Sep 29 '17 at 20:21

• What exactly is "this"? Is that a system message that you got? – Emilio Pisanty Sep 29 '17 at 20:32
• It is just displayed in the box that appears with the final deletion prompt, after clicking delete below the post. Or at least, it was for me. – user95137 Sep 29 '17 at 20:33
• FWIW the answer has a positive score so you cannot delete your question in any case. – Qmechanic Sep 29 '17 at 20:55
• The prompt you mention is not normally encountered in the normal operation of the site, which made the original formulation of your question extremely confusing. I have rephrased it to add some context; feel free to re-shape it as you consider necessary (possibly adding a screenshot?), but please keep in mind the experience of people who are not directly looking at the same screen as you when you do that. – Emilio Pisanty Sep 29 '17 at 22:13
