Why can't I delete a review?

I have made three separate attempts at deleting a review. The first attempt was declined. Why would that be? The second attempt was finally "approved" two days ago (after a week!), but the review is still posted. The third attempt is now "pending". The reason for the deletion is that the review has been determined to be "unhelpful" by several IMDb subscribers while none have found it "helpful". I see no point in keeping any of my reviews that have been deemed to be  "unhelpful" by IMDb subscribers.  The subject is a film that I hate but that somehow has achieved a 7.3 rating by IMDb subscribers, which I consider to be a very average high rating. At this point, the specific name of the film is irrelevant. I don't keep reviews that have been deemed to be "Unhelpful". I devote too much time and effort to them.

#190613-170208-144304 (My 6/13/19 request for deletion was declined by IMDb. Why?)
#190616-164851-107004 (My 6/16/19 request for deletion was approved without action)
#190619-162942-761804 (My 6/19/19) (third) request for deletion is now pending.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
