Some answers (and even some questions) are phrased very conversationally (example). I prefer less talk and more pure facts. I understand and respect other people's way and I haven't voted or commented about this; that would not be fair or even objective. But it's something to discuss here on meta.
Clarification: I absolutely agree that long answers can be necessary, and with a top summary they're often awesome. What I meant was not the length of the posts but their style. I understand that users want to add their personal touch. I feel that conversational fillers like "Hope this could help man." dilutes the quality, but maybe it's just me.

Do we collectively want to encourage one kind over the other, or simply let it happen naturally?
