When I skip a review what happens?

The Skip option skips that review for you and will not place it in your queue again. It's not counted as a review in your stats, and is as if you never saw the review. Another reviewer will see that ...

What should we do when we have a serial answerer to promote a product?

I'm not sure these are "real" spam as they actually answer the question and (now) have a disclaimer on them. I'd be tempted to leave them as each one is adjusted to the question they are ...

Is there a limit to the number of times a question is eligible to vote on to reopen after it has been edited?

One specific point written in Shog's answer I'd like to emphasize is: A question will only be enqueued once per closure via editing. If a question is put on hold I try to avoid editing it, if the ...

Does Syntax highlighting warrant an edit?

I think this is a hard call. Unless the edit queue needs to be invoked, I think anything that makes a question easier to read warrants an edit. When the edit queue is required, then I think an ...
