Nod. you all are hitting on some of the very points that cause me to also
have mixed feelings about that network of sites as well. It's also true
that the same cat[tle]-herding problem exists between SO and a topic
subsite. I imagine the maintainers probably have entertained the notion of
Cc'ing "dba"-tagged questions into dba.stackexchange (which I happen to
think would be clever, and "leaking" some "dba" reputation would also be
clever) but as far as I know that doesn't happen. In any case, it's an
interesting discussion (here) and social experiment (there)... and Drupal
might be somewhat of an anomaly, I dunno.
