On the Super User question Any command line tool checking windows domain password?, I noticed that the accepted answer was listed at the bottom.

Is that a bug?

No - if a question is self answered, the (self) selected answer is not automatically on top. As such its by upvotes and in random order within answers of the same number of votes.

This is intended behaviour.

  • In this particular case sorting by "active" puts the accepted answer first ...
