Hmm, I think that "social problem" is not what I meant.

It's difficult to communicate effectively in writing, and we do not have
good ways of collating best practices for doing that and passing them on
to new and existing contributors.  Further, communicating effectively in
writing takes energy that isn't always available.

To my mind, this is what's responsible for us communicating less
effectively.  When I say that's it's not a technical problem, I just
mean that it seems like a problem we can't program our way out of.
