    What's interesting about this example is the negative answer is at the top. Usually, it's at the bottom. In this case, because it's the accepted answer, it appears at the top regardless of the score. – jmort253 Aug 5 '12 at 16:43

Assuming that this refers to the colour of answer text, they are greyed out when their score is -3 or below to indicate that their content is not entirely reliable.

Such answers have been downvoted by a significant amount (scoring -3 or more), and have been made lighter to de-emphasize them.
