I was just wondering about how many people blindly perform reviews. Personally, I have noticed that once in a while, I will accept a suggested edit if it looks good and has no spelling or grammar mistakes without actually confirming the content if I cannot (e.g., if I am using XP at the moment instead of 7), but I usually do read it to make sure it is at least relevant.
Today I rejected a tag-wiki suggestion because only two questions are using the tag, both of which are at least three years old. It has already been established (by Jeff himself no less) that tags with very low use have little reason to exist beyond a few months (i.e., once the questions have gone stale and are unlikely to be answered anytime soon or to benefit from having a tag). As a simple solution, he has even created a script to automatically remove single-use tags more than six months old.
I explained in my rejection comment (along with a link to the aforementioned thread) that the tag in question falls into this category and should just be deleted due to lack of use rather than have a tag-wiki filled out for it. And yet, two people (one a mod) subsequently approved the tag-wiki suggestion. I can’t help but wonder if they simply looked at the suggested text, thought it was acceptable (i.e., not spam/vandalism), and merely clicked approve automatically out of habit.
I checked to see if perhaps SuperUser has a different tag policy from StackOverflow, but it doesn’t seem to.
Is blind-reviewing a real problem? I know there is a review log, but is there a way to actually address reviews that seem incorrect, particularly for tags since they don’t have Flag links like questions/answers?
