Another non-critical bug, but I've long since noticed that when you are reviewing a low-quality answer (I'm pretty sure I've noticed it on multiple stacks) which the system has identified as possible spam, a "Our system has identified this post as possible spam; please review carefully" message shows up not only over the answer but also over the question which is shown below for reference.

A picture is worth a thousand words (screenshot from a review on Ask Ubuntu):

Screenshot of review audit

In this particular case it was a review audit, but I'm fairly certain I've seen the same bug elsewhere - and if I haven't, it's kind of a dead give away for review audits which ought to be removed.

    Both posts can be flagged as spam so why this is a bug? – rene Mar 6 '17 at 19:56
  • @rene, Both can, but I happen to know that the question was not. – anonymous2 Mar 6 '17 at 19:57
  • I'm not sure what the bug is. Is it because it's kind of a dead give away for review audits? If so, then this is status-bydesign. – rene Mar 6 '17 at 20:05

    @rene, no, it's that it shows "Our system has identified this post as ..." over the question, which the system has obviously not identified as spam: it's a three year old post that's still around. – anonymous2 Mar 6 '17 at 20:06
  • This can also occur with only the question showing the warning: image; review. You can edit this into your question... – Laurel Nov 14 '18 at 22:14
