I had a lot of situations where I need to put "my own" comment when recommend a deletion of an answer. This is because, I felt none of the available options do not suit to indicate the real problem in the answer.

For an example, recently I came to recommend deletion of an answer that seems like this

I got it now. Google is your friend!

One of our community member answered his own question like this ! There were no better suit deletion option available when I recommended this answer for deletion.

It would be nice if there was an option to put a custom comment while recommend for deletion.

So my questions are..

Is there any provision to do that ?

If not, why it is not available ?
