Thanks for your valid and considerate feedback.
I can think of a few reasons why there's such a chatter.
1. The "quick post" feature is one of many improvements to speed up the conversation around here. It's one reason I've secluded the post count to the profile page.
2. This is also getting much more traffic, like the 75 or so new posts just today, even without more than a couple of links from other sites (thus far, I hope).
3. Users here are quite diverse and you're seeing the divide of instant messenging and thorough writing.
Maybe a chat room -- separate from the board -- would solve some of it. Maybe a mantra: "think before you write."
But there are many, many other things in development at BobaFett.com, so any solution would have to come from other volunteers.
