This question is answered on Meta StackExchange
Let's say there are two answers currently, Answer #1 and Answer #2. At first glance, I see that Answer #1 is above Answer #2. After refreshing, I now see that Answer #2 is above Answer #1, with no changes to either answer.
I ask this because, in my experience, the answer on top gets more attention than the answers below. The answers below may even be better reviews about the code in question.
