Ok, so having just been in the review panel for a few hours, I've run across several instances of this which have really ruffled my feathers. The main problem I'm seeing here is that users are reviewing posts which they may or may not even have any experience with, seeing that there's nothing to do, and blindly upvoting things. And I mean blindly as in, there have been a couple answers which got 2 upvotes and the answers themselves were flat-out wrong. One I downvoted, but it's still sitting at a +1 because of the reviewers. This is outrageous, there really needs to be a middle option so that users can stop damaging our site in pursuit of a silly badge!

This brings me to my second point: the whole point of reviewing is community moderation. Saying that, the policy has always been that moderators are not there to judge the accuracy of the content, but only to clean up the crap off the site. Is that not exactly what we're supposed to be doing by using the review panel? And yet, you are practically forcing us to try and do so on posts that oftentimes aren't anywhere within our realm of expertise when the queues are near empty.

Jaydles says in another answerJaydles says in another answer that if we don't know enough about the subject, we should be clicking the Not Sure option, and I couldn't disagree more. The review panel has always been a tool for keeping the site clean, and that statement right there is completely changing its meaning, and I don't like it. You're effectively taking away our tool to keep the site clean and transforming it into an "aww, these users are new, let's be nice to them and upvote everything of theirs." The First Posts queue should be "these are new users, we need to review their posts and make sure they understand the proper use of our site." The review system needs to go back to reviewing, the process in which we get rid of crap and let potentially good content stay. Let the people interested in the question determine if the content is good or bad. People who naturally come across the question are much more likely to take the post seriously and judge the content accordingly than some random user in the review queue.
