Subject Tomcat-user versus StackOverflow

All,

I'm finding a lot of questions lately posted simultaneously to both
tomcat-user and to StackOverflow. How does the Tomcat community feel
about that? I'm wondering whether I (as a member of said community)
should be encouraging SO users to post here or get their answers here
or whether its worth it to answer both places or what.

Assuming that the user bothers to check both places for an answer, it
doesn't matter to them whether the answer comes on SO or tomcat-user.

On the one hand, SO rewards accepted answers with karma points, so
that's kinda nice, but I don't really give a crap about that. On the
other hand, the ASF is about community, and I feel like growing the
community is an important part of being a member. Additionally, I
really think that SO is a great site and quite helpful (their
community has helped me out a number of times) and therefore don't
want to diminish /their/ community by, for example, refusing to answer
directly over there.

But it's a pain in the butt to craft an answer on tomcat-user to try
to help someone and then see the same question later on SO.

Any opinions?
