This review https://stackoverflow.com/review/low-quality-posts/3542856 seems to need at least a dozen close recommendations:

    On the plus side, this bug does illustrate the consistency and consensus of the twelve SO reviewers on this particular question. Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 18:47

    Agreed, you found better targets. Commented Dec 9, 2013 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." Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 19:49

    @Shog9 - how is this not a bug? Per my duplicate (meta.stackexchange.com/questions/208221/…), 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. Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 20:00
  • That is a bug, @LBT - the fact that over a dozen of them were collected isn't though.

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.
