Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

Can someone clarify for me how comments are distinguished as either black or grey?

I know that star upticks help to raise grey comments up. And yet I see a lot of comments that aren't starred up but that end up in the black. Not to mention a LOT of old school io9 commenters (collex and several others) who continue to languish in the grey.
