This question some time ago flagged something that now seems to happen a lot. When I go to the "unanswered" tab, I spot 6 questions that have answers. That doesn't seem right. And some of those answers have been up for quite some time: A Reef Without Coral was answered on Feb. 28!

Is this a bug? A feature?

Unanswered means that it does not have any answer with > 0 score. So questions can be answered, but those are not upvoted.
