Sometimes the person who asks a question doesn't accept the highest voted answer - maybe they have a different opinion, maybe they haven't noticed the new answer? This finds out which worthy contributions have been snubbed by the OP by accepted a lower-rated answer. Top 100 answers that earn a super-majority (>67%) of the total votes for a question's answers, and earned a minimum score of 5, but lost out to another answer for acceptance.
