Audit failed for wanting to recommend deletion to an answer that reads like a joke solution

Failed audit for trying to "improve" it

I disagree. The specific audit you referenced is laughably wrong. If you had even looked at the suggested edit, you wouldn't have been compelled to hit "Improve", but instead, "Reject". Thank mfm ...

Why did I fail this review audit?

It could be improved quite a bit. The formatting could be changed to a list. Proper punctuation could be added. Proper capitalization could be added. That's an example of a low-quality answer.
