The exact algorithm used to denote whether a post is low quality has not been released publicly to prevent gaming the system.

However, from the little information released on Meta.SE, it seems each post is given a score based on its content. Good things increase the score and bad things decrease it. The old 10k tools used to show this raw score directly, however as the 10k flags have been obliterated, it's no longer possible to see (except diamond mods).

With the above answer, I'd hypothesise that it was just on the boundary, with titles that didn't start with capitals, multiple links and 'advertising' of a 30 day trial.

    Excessive links is the key here I think, SE may also have a blacklist of domains that have been implicated in previous flagged content too

  • Also frequent, rapid edits by the author. That'll raise a flag as well with the system.
