Using /review (on SF), I came across a post that should have been on the meta site. I clicked through to use the new flag->doesn't belong dialog, but then the auto-redirect kicked in and I was on the meta site! The question had already been migrated, which is why it was closed on the /review for the parent main site.

There is a slight timing issue here, if a post is deleted it may show up in /review for 10 minutes to an hour due to caching. Bumping the /review cache every time a post is deleted may be a bit expensive.

I will look to see if we can bounce stuff off the list once deleted, it may through off paging a bit.

The post I linked was migrated Dec 23rd, 2010 and so I assumed that migrated question were never removed from the /review. I've got no problem with the cache taking a while to catch up. –  yhw42 Jan 31 '11 at 2:46

@yhw42 ah ... I follow ... it was closed ... but not deleted ... will see if I can add closed as a global filter to /review ... never show closed questions or answers –  waffles Jan 31 '11 at 3:01

Harder than originally thought? I just got caught out by this too. –  Benjol Jun 8 '11 at 10:44
