Not only do you have to be very knowledgeable about a subject, you’ve also got to be very fast in providing said answer.
And this is a bad thing?
I personally find SO to be an invaluable Q&A resource, while CP provides well-written articles. Even SO users have remarked CP is a good source of full-length articles. I also the CP community, but that's unrelated to it being a programmer's resource IMHO.
I assume what he means is that a less knowledgeable person may respond faster than a more knowledgeable one, and the OP may accept the lesser guy's answer, which may not be inherently wrong, but may also not be the best solution.
I've never seen anyone seriously complain about karma here (rep scores).
I have seen some complaining, but it's been a few years. Mostly it's a case of double standards. But, it's not something *I* care about...

I think like any other programming site, it's hitting a saturation point where it's useful for beginners and intermediate level developers but not particularly advantageous to advanced level users.
Exactly. I look up simple questions, usually when dealing with languages or frameworks I'm unfamiliar with.
That said, IMO, the advanced level questions I want to ask are not appropriate for any time of forum. They're not necessarily easy answers, probably involve a lot of discussion, and are best done in a more conversational format, like Slack.
For example, I'd like to find some dynamic connector routing algorithms that optimizes its path and avoids intersections with other graphic elements, and discuss pros and cons of different algorithms. Do you think I could ask that on SO or even here?
