Just because often it contradicts efficiency. Some people come here to
make friends, other come to have the job done (some of them have an agenda,
and others just want indeed to increase the sum of knowledge). For me
personally, making friends sounds like opposite to efficiency, because I
care about quality first. I see from the discussions that there are people
like me. I also know there are many people unlike me, for whom the
collaborative aspect is more important than the result. This is fine with
me. I just do not want any universal decisions to be made under assumptions
that we are all alike. We are not.
