Why {} == {} is false, but {} + {} == {} + {} is true was part of a First Posts audit. I remember seeing What is the explanation for these bizarre JavaScript behaviours mentioned in the 'Wat' talk for CodeMash 2012? and thought it was a possible duplicate. I went to flag as duplicate and I got the "STOP! Look and Listen." message.

Why was this the incorrect move?

    Yet another borderline case. When something with that many votes shows up in the review queues, it's usually a good idea to go to the question and take a closer look.

    This is why the audits need to be a little more patient. This was already predicted for the close-votes queue. Aug 5, 2013 at 4:57

It wasn't.

Duplicate scenarios, unfortunately, have the potential to break a lot of our "known good" audits.

I've been caught up by this too. Don't worry about it.
