I just got this error message:

circular duplicate thing

Fair enough; I wasn't really paying attention to the duplicate link at the top of the suggested duplicate, just at the contents.

However, this question is in the close votes review queue with a vote to close as a possible duplicate of the question that got closed as a duplicate of this one.

Can we exclude these posts from the review queue (or if it's not easy, run a job to get rid of them)? As circular duplicates are verboten they'll just languish in the queue forever; generating confusion and more meta posts like this one (or this one).

P.S. I clicked do not close; this isn't a question about what to do in this situation.

They'll languish, but not forever, because close votes eventually expire. The exception is for questions with <100 views, but I would imagine that being in the queue would eventually push them over 100 views. – Pops Oct 11 '12 at 21:11
That was another question I meant to ask at some point. Do review views count as views? I'd have guessed that they shouldn't? If they do then this matters even less :-). – ben is uǝq backwards Oct 11 '12 at 21:13
Well, people will get this dialog, and they'll think "what the heck?" and visit the question to see what makes it so special, and boom, that's a view. – Pops Oct 11 '12 at 21:14
I didn't; you can tell what's happening from the fancy new taby things the queues have going on. – ben is uǝq backwards Oct 11 '12 at 21:15
possible duplicate of "possible duplicate" points at confirmed duplicate of this question (sorry, couldn't resist) – Josh Caswell Oct 15 '12 at 23:37
I've met this error before when I reviewed a Suggested Edit. :s – Kjuly Oct 17 '12 at 8:44
