I am curious regarding the low quality answers queue. Are all posts manually reported, or is there some automated mechanism? I ask, because I see a lot of posts from regulars and established members that are either very too the point in answering the question or provide very good hints. I would hope other regulars aren't flagging them for providing help. Given that a lot of these types of posts get flagged (sorry I do not have any immediate examples to provide), is some sort of script flagging them for review based on brevity?

There is an automated script which assigns posts a "low quality answer score" which is responsible for the majority of the posts in the queue. However, flagging a post as "very low quality" should also put it in the queue.

    $\begingroup$ The auto-flagged answers also appear differently in the review queues: They'll be marked with something like "Low answer quality score [63]." $\endgroup$ – user61527 Apr 13 '14 at 21:52

    $\begingroup$ @T.Bongers That's probably in the 10K flag queue? I haven't seen such scores in the Low Quality Review queue (which is what ml0105 is asking about). $\endgroup$ – user127096 Apr 21 '14 at 19:19
  • $\begingroup$ @user127096 Yes, you're quite right. As far as I know, there's no way to tell them apart in the usual Low Quality queue. $\endgroup$ – user61527 Apr 22 '14 at 16:46
