If a question accumulates downvotes, does the post receive any more or less attention?
I am aware of the Twitter Bot which increases exposure for high-score posts. I am wondering if there is a corollary feature which actively changes a post's exposure due to down-voting. For example, does a low-scoring post get systematically or automatically dragged to the bottom of a page or excluded from certain meta searches?
This question arises from curiously weak responses to what the Internet considers to be "hot" topics, per Google and Yahoo.
