I tend to agree with VSarkiss, but not mainly for the reason of symmetry.

Perlmonks IMO is a community, where the community (or the designated members of the community) should have the power to decide what it would like as its content, not individual authors. Just like the voting system is a social, less invasive measure of directing good content (much like cigarette warnings for smokers), the consideration for deletion is death to a node (much like smoking too much). We don't let the author have the lesser power of social steering/reward, why should we let them hold (or hold off) the community speaking in more important matters.
