Looks like the question was locked a few days ago so suggested edits can't be applied to it. Locking should have cancelled any pending edits, that it did not is a bug but a rare one as locking of posts is uncommon.

Thanks for reporting. This kind of stuff is hard to detect when you don't know what you're looking for, we've had the triage queue disabled in our staging environment, additionally this it didn't throw any errors, so it wasn't visible in the logs. We've reproduced the issue in our staging environment and pushed a fix, so the next time the canaries land it ...

Unless you are a moderator, not all sources of triggers are visible in the timeline. Reopen reviews can also be triggered by someone casting a re-open vote directly on the post. Since that’s a vote to reopen these are not shown in the timeline for anyone below moderator level. Someone almost certainly tried to reopen that post directly from the post itself ...

Looks like the review is no longer visually messy. Despite @Glorfindel managing to "Close" through a LQP review, it seems it's back to normal. Really strange scenario, though.

For me using Chrome 80.0.3987.149 it look like this. Note my formatting is different e.g. the "Meta" banner is in a different place, i.e. at the top of the page, whereas yours isn't?

Provided the review task hasn't since been completed by ...

Are we then being "forced" to comment even if the conditions do not require further commenting? You aren't forced to comment at all. You can upvote, downvote, closevote, review, edit, without ever leaving a comment. Period. If that is helpful for the people you are (indirectly) interacting with ... most likely: not so much. So ideally: When there is ...

So I would downvote the post and upvote the comment. But for some reason this still affects my reputation and am deducted 1. Downvote of an answer "costs" 1 reputation point. This is totally independent, and not related to review, comments, or anything else. Once you cast a downvote, the rep point is deducted from your account. I did not understand your ...

The advice in the accepted answer ("review more carefully") is not actionable. To uncover something actionable I went to the review page as referenced in many comments here. That page showed one bad edit, not many, and that the ban was for four days, not one hour. When I looked into it a little more more I found that on that review I and one other ...
