I did some First Post Reviews today and eventually got this question as an audit C++ What optimizations do compilers still struggle with?

It has 20 upvotes but it's (rightly) closed as not constructive.

I wanted to flag it as "primarily opinion based" but when I clicked on flag, I failed the audit: image of failed audit

Since I'm still somewhat new to reviewing I what to make sure I get it right in the future. Is this audit defective or was flagging actually the wrong approach?

The audit is definitely defective. –  Martijn Pieters Jul 18 '13 at 12:29
+1 I think I failed that a few days ago by daring to try and comment. –  michaelb958 Jul 18 '13 at 12:29
I probably would have failed that audit too. Good thing I don't do reviews, I guess. –  George Stocker Jul 18 '13 at 12:35
looking at it... –  m0sa Jul 18 '13 at 12:36
an excellent case to support recent feature request to deal with incorrectly picked audits: Review audits and “I understand” button –  gnat Jul 18 '13 at 12:46
Using such controverse close candidates as audits is perverse. Possibility to close questions which were asked before new rules were applied keeps me away from close votes queue. –  Danubian Sailor Jul 18 '13 at 14:20
Probably don't need manual feedback to detect closed questions, @gnat. –  Shog9 Jul 18 '13 at 14:29
@Shog9 well as an example, with fix that crap button, that particular bug would be discovered earlier and with less meta hassle - just note comment above "I think I failed that a few days ago by daring to try and comment". The smoother is bug reporting the faster is their detection and fix –  gnat Jul 18 '13 at 14:45
How come such an old post appear in the First Posts review (even if it's an audit)? –  Old Checkmark Jul 25 '13 at 13:00

Fixed and rolled out in build 2013.7.18.862. Closed questions are now excluded from known good post audits in the first posts review queue.
