This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Recommend Close just adds the post to the Close Review queue as well. – Martijn Pieters Dec 9 '13 at 18:35
On the plus side, this bug does illustrate the consistency and consensus of the twelve SO reviewers on this particular question. – Joseph Quinsey Dec 9 '13 at 18:47
Agreed, you found better targets. – Martijn Pieters Dec 9 '13 at 18:56
@Shog9: Maybe, as per your suggestion of Nov 8th, someone should make a feature-request: "I do think it probably makes sense to just skip over heavily-flagged posts for reviewers unable to actually vote though. And this might even be feasible to implement." – Joseph Quinsey Dec 9 '13 at 19:49
@Shog9 - how is this not a bug? Per my duplicate (…), it used to show Recommend Close when users with <3000 rep voted, but now they all say Close. I haven't seen this annoucned anywhere that the wording had changed, and it's extremely confusing to users already familiar with the system. – LittleBobbyTables Dec 9 '13 at 20:00
That is a bug, @LBT - the fact that over a dozen of them were collected isn't though. – Shog9 Dec 9 '13 at 20:06
up vote 5 down vote accepted

All but 4 of those reviewers have less than 3k reputation, and can only recommend closure. Their votes added this post to the Close Review queue as well.

A fifth voter, perhaps from the Close Review queue cast the 5th actual close vote; see the now-closed question itself:

put on hold as too broad by Nathaniel Ford, legoscia, bensiu, mehow, Chris Laplante 21 mins ago

where Nathaniel, legoscia, bensiu and mehow all are recorded as having voted to close in the low-quality review queue, in the same order that they are listed in the 'on hold' notice.
