I was recently pestering mods by flagging everything I could find, when I came across this situation: Pic of not old question

There was an answer in the 'late answers' tab that was posted on a question 3 minutes after it was asked. The question wasn't old either; it was asked 5 minutes ago.

yeah .. the copy is not corresponding to the query ... –  waffles Feb 10 '11 at 2:50
@Waffles, what does that mean? –  jjnguy Feb 10 '11 at 4:34
the text is not corresponding with the actual query we are running, I need to discuss with Jeff what the desired behavior is and fix it up –  waffles Feb 10 '11 at 4:50

Wow, a 400 bounty on a very old meta post. I see how this happened and needless to say - banned users will now no longer have their posts enter the late answers queue after the next build.

I think this happened on Workplace recently too.. –  enderland Dec 5 '12 at 0:00
It will be fixed everywhere when this is deployed. –  Geoff Dalgas Dec 5 '12 at 0:02
