With more Stack Exchange sites being created I typically skim over the Top Questions list for each to quickly see if there is anything interesting to get into.
I've noticed frequently on Programmers that the Top Questions list has a large number of poor questions. Today I specifically counted, 43 questions, 10 were closed, 2 marked as duplicates. 7 had a negative score (some were closed, some were not).
Is there a shortage of questions? Or could there possibly be a better way to create the Top Questions list (maybe excluding closed or down voted questions)?
Thanks to Rachel's comments I'm realizing that the list may not be what I expect it to be. But then should it maybe not be titled "Top Questions"?
