Michael - The home page is exactly that, the home page of AR. The message means that someone deemed your post worthy of being on the home page, and typically more people will see it there.

I believe other people have already answered where it is at.

This is either because it's a "popular" post (based on a certain # of comments) or "high traffic" meaning it got above a certain amt of clicks. The thresholds on these have not been shared, but they are not that high as many posts make it there.  Sounds like Bob will tweak/increase the thresholds soon.

No points.

Toronto, ON is the home page. 

For some of the "popular" posts that are one the homepage, I don't understand why they are there.  For example, posts of specific listings, often in small towns, that supposedly have received a lot of traffic.

Some posts or questions or answers to questions seem to "receive so much attention" because they have passed a certain criteria for number of likes, upvotes, answers, comments etc.

I think a lot of them are homepage clutter.

I get those emails all the time and feel like Sally Field for a nano-second, but really pay no attention. I suspect it does generate a few more comments but couldn't prove it empirically.
