During a recent
Review Suggested Edits session, I came across a reviewer who is clearly rubber stamping edits (
Approved 550 edit suggestions and rejected 7), and who had missed an obvious case of vandalism by an anonymous miscreant.
How about considering mechanisms, which:
- Give feedback to reviewers that their reject rate lies outside a normal range of the larger community (e.g. outside of 2 sigma)
- Introduce some kind of penalty for repeat rubberstamping (e.g. revoking review rights and / or revocation of review badges?)
