I think part of the solution is:
- Think before you post. Is the contribution useful, or another `me too' ?
- Trim the post that you are quoting. If you reply to a message you got
30 minutes ago, odds are that you don't need to quote all of it to reply
to it. This would make messages shorter and faster for people to
- If my answer is marginal at best, I often wait a few hours or a day to
see if someone posts a better one.
