Why does the “Unanswered Questions” tab show questions that have answers?

When viewing unanswered questions, many of them show several answers, even in the icon in the list of questions, but still appear in the list. Is this a bug? Why does this happen?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
It took me 5 minutes of looking for what was happening before running into the answer obliquely, in a discssion about the ethics of downvoting answers to re-mark a question as unanswered. –  David Manheim Jun 15 '12 at 14:43
    
There's a blog post describing the rationale for this as well: blog.stackoverflow.com/2008/09/ok-now-define-answered –  Shog9 Jun 15 '12 at 14:50

1 Answer 1

When a question has no answers with more than 0 reputation, it is considered unanswered.

Once any of the answers have been upvoted above 0, they will no longer be considered unanswered, and will no longer appear on this list.
