The Hot filter is based on recent thumbs. Older geeklists naturally trail off in the list after a time as their new thumbs come in at a slower rate compared to those received by newer geeklists.
I track my own contributions. There has been a slow, but steady, stream of thumbs for the GL as a whole. It shows on the Hot GeekList search, but not on the list of Hot GL's on the site's front page.
