In How to handle crankery on MathOverflow 2.0? Andy Putman pointed out that he flagged a post as low quality, but it never reached the low quality review queue.

I feel that in order to effectively handle cranks, or generally low quality posts, whenever a user (with sufficient reputation, maybe 1k?) flags a post as low quality it should be immediately added to the review queue.

I feel that this would be a good feature, at least on MathOverflow, but probably on MSE as well (I don't use other sites across the SE networks, so I can't say much else).

    $\begingroup$ I should point out, in case some of the new users on the SE systems are unaware, that it is perfectly fine to post network-wide software requests on meta sites of particular sites (rather than just meta.SO). The developers are well aware to this, and usually respond within reasonable time. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Manishearth: I don't like to accumulate accounts over the SE networks. I refuse to open any further than MSE (and MO which was "forced into linkage" due to the migration). Since developers do follow site metas it's fine. Feel free to copy-paste this to MSO. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila no probs. :) re:copypaste: Nah, IIRC cross posting is discouraged. $\endgroup$ Jun 26, 2013 at 10:34
  • $\begingroup$ For that matter, I feel that NAA flags should also be piped to the LQ queues :) $\endgroup$ Jun 26, 2013 at 10:39
  • $\begingroup$ @Manishearth: Sounds reasonable. $\endgroup$
