The system's decision to take this answer as reviewer test was correct, as it is an accepted and well upvoted answer.
However, I agree that this answer as it currently stands should not have been accepted and upvoted like this. It does really clearly not meet the site's quality standards.
However, looking at the post's revisions site, we see that it got edited 53 times! And only the last edit 19 hours ago removed all the possibly useful content and reduced it to this misspelled single word.
The last edit made the post no longer deserving this accepted status and especially its high score. But not sure what we should do in this case? I doubt rolling back the last edit would be the right choice, as the author decided that the previous content is no longer valid. I can't verify whether that's true or not - it should be flagged for moderator attention anyway. They must discuss how to handle it.
The choice of review audits is automated; it's based totally on the votes and accepting of the answer. I learned that lesson the hard way with a similar review audit that I failed:
Please notice: the top comment (12 upvotes) says this is not an answer.
Hilarious. I just got another review audit on another answer on the same question. Except this time I passed. The funny thing is that I would not have flagged this second one: it was at least an answer. I just left a comment saying that the answer had nothing to do with Ubuntu.
What's up with this question? I just got a third review audit on yet another answer to the same question. This time, I really liked the answer, so I upvoted it. In my opinion, this is the right answer. It gave an answer about Ubuntu that validly pointed out that white noise is harsh, but also gave a solution.
