  • As I recall, there is a method for Stack Exchange staff to force questions back to queues, in code or from their user interface. I don't know if this is the case, and why it should happen. Suspending a user, which means forcing the user's reputation back to 1 has some side effects on review queues, but I don't think this is the case.

Yes, this is a well-known, but temporary issue: Raise the rep bar on late answers

The change took effect going back to the start of the site, but once all the current reviews are completed, the effect of the change should be only a few extra answers on the queue every now and then. It should not be a continual flood of tasks like you see here.

Sorry about the alarm.
