So I was going along my merry way in the LQ review queue, and lo and behold this question shows up.

The question is definitely low quality, I'm not arguing that. I clicked "recommend close". But then I noticed that the question was posted in 2009.

So, that's weird. Why is such an old post showing up in the queue? Here's the link to the review item.

That's definitely weird. I just voted to close also, it looked like an audit at first with the grayed out username. Maybe someone flagged it? That sounds like a probable reason as to why it was added. – Josh Crozier Oct 27 '13 at 23:03
There are probably thousands of questions from 2009 that should be in the queue but aren't. – slugster Oct 27 '13 at 23:18

A user had flagged the post as "very low quality" - which after being active for 15 minutes bumped it into the Low Quality Posts queue. Nothing weird here.

The interesting thing about this situation was that the review task sync happened while the flag was being created - resulting in the review task being dated slightly before the flag. Nothing incorrect resulted from this, but it did throw me for a bit when viewing the timeline. – Shog9 Oct 27 '13 at 23:29
