I occasionally see "exact duplicate" questions appear on the review page despite having configured my filters to exclude it. This seems to happen when a question has close votes for multiple reasons, i.e. "exact duplicate" or "too localized".

I think the filtering is a great idea otherwise!


Okay, so this is by design; guessing the query just asserts something like this (oversimplified) condition:

WHERE reason IN (list of checked reasons)

Is there a chance this could be turned into something like this?

WHERE reason IN (list of checked reasons) 
AND reason NOT IN (list of unchecked reasons)

Currently, review filters ensure that each post matches each one of your checked (i.e. checkbox is checked) criteria, but do not ensure that each post does not match each unchecked criterion.

A post that has been closed both as "exact duplicate" and "too localized" still matches your filter, since "too localized" is checked.
