...most nodes are reasonable nodes that most of our visitors deserve to see.
Doesn't that mean that casual visitors are likely to see a repetetive collection of mostly uninteresting questions and uninspiring answers?

I wonder how many copies of <Insert the name of your local newspaper> would sell if it published the headlines of every story inside, on it's front-page.
- "Tiddles the cat lost"
- "Tiddles the cat sighted"
- "Tiddles the cat found"
- "Mrs Brown's bunion clears up"
That is where the "front page" analogy comes from isn't it?
