The following search query should give you all questions that are categorized as unanswered, but have at least one answer with non-positive vote count:



You can't do that with the tabs on that page or using the search, but you can find them using the API:

unanswered = Last@Reap@Block[{i = 1, more},
      While[{more = "has_more" /. #, Sow["items" /. #]} &@
        Import["http://api.stackexchange.com/2.1/questions/unanswered?pagesize=100&site=mathematica&filter=!BGS1(RNaQDJUqhjM_kktL.ISG39ejq&page=" <> ToString@i++, "JSON"]; 
        more =!= False

 {"answer_count" -> Except[0], "link" -> l_, ___, "title" -> t_} :> Hyperlink[t, l]] // TableForm

    P.S. The filter=... in the URL is an API filter that I created to return only the necessary fields. In essence, this moves the filtering operation from mma to the API service, which makes for cleaner code. The filter is non-expiring and immutable, so this answer will always work. – rm -rf Jan 17 '13 at 2:30
