Though I agree in general, I think that one shouldn't overestimate the
issue.  Even without cross-posting it happens quite often that several
people investigate at the same time.  This is unavoidable.

The most important thing is that you cross-post the answer too, 
immediately after you received it.

And as far as »Gimme Pizza« [1] is concerned,

it's a nice article but I think that the author overestimated the
issue and when he said "Then darkness rised" he exaggerated a bit.
Cross-posting, if done properly, is definitely not the end of the
world.  It's not the best solution though.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
