I was going through the close vote queue today and I ran into something that hadn't happened to me before
It is my general practice to, upon seeing a new question in the queue, briefly review the question for any obvious faults, overall quality of the question, and whether or not it fits the general description of the close vote, then click the "Close" button and look at the specific reason specified for closing the question before reviewing the question in more detail if necessary
Is that bad practice?
I ask this because today I ran into one of the audits to make sure users are paying attention to the questions they're reviewing. Upon first glance it looked like a legitimate question, I had no inclination to close it for the "off topic" reason provided, but as always I clicked the "Close" button to check out the specific reason given for voting to close it (thus failing the audit). There must be some reason for the tester fails me when I click "Close" as opposed to "Vote to close"
Of the people who disagree with the LowerClassOverflowian's answer (or anyone else), does someone want to provide an answer? I'd like to hear some other people's input
Also, this proposition seems to be what I think should happen
