The idea is that they delete their own answer because it is wrong, was written because a misunderstanding of the question, or it is not an appropriate answer, and they notice that; the fact they do it even if the answer score is 3 makes them disciplined. Strictly speaking, an answer's score doesn't say anything about the its quality. In fact, the user who ...

The "score of 10 or more" refers to the difference between the number of up-votes a post received, and the number of down-votes that post received; if a post got 5 up-votes and 2 down-votes, its score is 3 (5 - 2). Currently your highest-voted answer has 7 up-votes and no down-votes, so you're not far off getting the badge for that one.

Yes, access to the review queues requires 500 rep (see Privileges). However, users can also review suggested edits to their own posts. I suspect the user got the badge from this post.

This isn't a bug, it's a misunderstanding about what "positive question record" means. This is somewhat confusing, so you're not alone!

For example, ...

The edits count is not only for suggested edits, but also for normal edits. Once their reputation reach 2000, users don't need to suggest edits; their edits directly apply to the posts they change. That is the case of Anil Sagar.

You get that badge when you provided answers that have been accepted, but the score of those answers is zero. (The score is the difference between up-votes and down-votes.) When those answers are more than 10, and 25% of all the answers you gave, then you get the badge.

I do not think this will make it any better than worse (wondering what clive and other multi-thousand reputed users would say). These units are made to avoid what you are trying to get back. 8 GB is, in my opinion looks decent than 8192 MB.
