I occasionally open an incognito window on my favourite Stack just to check if there are any interesting questions on tags I have ignored.

Today a large number of negatively-scored posts have been edited, and when I visited the homepage I saw only 3 posts, instead of the expected 15 (see image below). Checking against the most recently active questions page, these 3 are the only non-negatively rated questions in the most recently active 15 questions.

Does it make sense to filter out the negative questions after picking the set of 15? It seems counter-intuitive to me, and I would instead expect to see the most recently active 15 questions that are not negative.

(It also doesn't look great to show a potential new user just 3 questions; the site looks a bit abandoned.)
