The "Latest" allows those who regularly deal with the area of questions to quickly see what is new. It also gives those new in the arena a bit more visibility. "Hot" relates to those questions which heavily attract the reader beyond the realm of just being a new query. Finally, "Best" defines those questions which defy the realm of "Hot" and simply continue to remain popular by pulling a stream of readers and comments. That's my take! ~WB
This is the simple way of shorting of questions. Each reader is unique and look things different angles.
When someone looks for latest things, other looks for what is hot? It is just to catch attention of the readers and get them involved in the reading questions.
Wayne Brown has explained logic (mathematics) for falling a particular group - Best or Latest or Hot.
As a reader, I have the opportunity to come here and search for answers based on what is of interest to me. As a reader, I usually like to read the best answer first, so I will click on the "best" link to make sure that answer is sorted to the top. Some people, who follow the question, might want to see the "latest" answer first, so they will click on the link that sorts the latest answer to the top. I assume the "hottest" link will sort according to the answer that receives the most number of thumbs up. I actually like this feature because it allows me to view the answers according to my own interest.

After answering over 50 "Q&A" questions from the public, I find that if this system is going to continue there are a few tools I need to manage what is presented to me.First of all, there needs to be a SPAM switch for those nonsensical "questions that I get, most irritating is a...
