I today did a review task. I noticed the answer by a new user was a copy paste of an earlier exactly same answer that I read on the site by a trusted user. So I flagged the answer as needing moderator attention (for plagiarism).

I received the following warning:

STOP! Look and Listen.

This was an audit, designed to see if you were paying attention. You didn't pass. Your review was inappropriate. This was a high quality post and you should have considered leaving it as-is or even upvoting.

Don't worry, we've already handled this post appropriately – but please take a minute to look it over closely, keeping in mind the guidance above.

well obviously the review should not be failed, as I correctly detected the answer being a copy....

  • $\begingroup$ Unfortunately this is not a bug as much as a feature. My suggestion is to always open the post on a separate page, and see what's going on. $\endgroup$
