Do reviewers suffer consequences if they exercise poor judgement in their task of reviewing posts?

I refer particularly to 'robot' style reviews where the reviewer appears to give little care to the task in hand and manages, as an example, to review 20 posts in almost as many seconds - presumably in their quest for badge awards or for some other odd purpose.

In another thread just over a year ago

The audit review system - dubious posts

Seth said "AFAIK the audit system doesn't give out auto review bans, so I wouldn't worry about audits so much"

Is this still the position? Do reviewers suffer no consequences for robot style reviewing?

    The audit system does do bans. You can get banned from failing audits for 2 days at least. I have, after failing one too many audits.

    I don't think there's one number - it's a combination of both failed audits and the time spent on reviewing. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/177073/…

    Then there are audits that fail you when it shouldn't
