I just had this low quality post review https://math.stackexchange.com/review/low-quality-posts/433324 and I've been noticing a theme. This answer is a great hint, the user has a long history of great posts, but it ended up here anyway. I've noticed this is a very common theme. Why is this so? Who are flagging these posts?

    $\begingroup$ The answer is very short, only 150 characters. This is probably the explanation. $\endgroup$ – Najib Idrissi Jun 17 '15 at 7:51

The system sometimes autofills the queue with posts that meet some requirements. It seems likely to me that this post made it to the low-quality queue because it is so short.

    $\begingroup$ It should be pointed that while reviewing, it should tell you if this is an auto-flag or someone manually flagged it. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jun 17 '15 at 8:15
  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila that would be nice. That is not the current behaviour, right? $\endgroup$ – davidlowryduda Jun 17 '15 at 8:16
  • $\begingroup$ Isn't it? I recall that it is. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jun 17 '15 at 8:26

    $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila it might be. I infrequently review since mod votes there are still binding and get tired of hitting 'skip.' I delete lots of posts already. $\endgroup$ – davidlowryduda Jun 17 '15 at 8:42

    $\begingroup$ How touching! "The mod who couldn't delete" would be the first of its kind in internet dramas. $\endgroup$ – GPerez Jun 18 '15 at 0:01
