When I click on the UNANSWERED tab in MSE next to the BADGES and ASK QUESTION, I am finding that many of the "unanswered" questions indeed are actually answered. Can anyone please explain the theory behind this phenomena?

  • $\begingroup$ It's a custom definition of "answered". If somebody posts some nonsense as an "answer", that shouldn't create the impression that the question has been answered. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 16, 2015 at 10:31
