I ran across a clear "spam" question in the low-quality posts review queue today. Link in case it works, but I hate promoting it by even linking it here :-/.
The correct response to spam is to flag it as such, but there's no option to flag in the low-quality review queue.
- Looks OK: Nope!
- Edit: Nope!
- Close: Which requires a reason -- The "closest" close-reason would be "A community-specific reason" followed by a "Other - add comment". But again, that's not how spam would or should normally be handled.
With that in mind:
- Are spam questions supposed to be the LQ review queue?
- Doesn't this just put the spam post in front of more eyes?
- What's the correct action when reviewing a clear-spam post in the low-quality review queue?
I feel like I'm failing this review-queue audit test :-/. Is it me, or is there a problem with this audit test?
Update: It definitely was an Audit question. I see it came back up for @Nmath, who passed it with a "Close" response.
However, another similar audit question has come up in the queue recently as well. This one, @BeastOfCaerbannog accidentally failed while looking for a way to "Flag" it.
