Thanks for keeping the discussion around issue queues going along.
There are obvious parallels between the git problem (people escaped to GitHub because of CVS, then we switched d.o to git) and the support problem (people are escaping to Drupal Answers, can we start improving our own tools, and how?).

In the end, what matters is decreasing the amount of frustration that is felt on both sides (users / developers) while getting or providing support.

(Btw, yes, it's "Boyan Zhivanovich", you pronounced it correctly ;) Sticking with the shorter "Boyan Z" is much less painful to pronounce though)
