Those of us either in or from a corporate background tend to have a hard time with that. So many bad ideas work their way into the system because people ignore them in the hope that others see the same flaws. While I do agree that there is a lot of white noise going on as a result of the volume, it's been my experience that the best ideas are the result of arguing the bad ones. As a group, need to value and encourage every idea that’s conceived in an effort to improve our end product at this phase of the game. Then, we can and set time down the road pan through them and pick out the best. I'd much rather follow that course than discourage contributions. 

So in my view, the problems we're discussing are the byproduct of missing organization, not too many voices. If we can come up with a better structure to allow everything through, comment on them, and sort them later, we can alleviate most of the congestion.
