I said make as little conversation as possible, not as little communication as possible.
Conversation takes effort and time. It's work.
And I can think of a relevant principle:
"Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential."
Sometimes you can achieve maximum communication with minimum conversation.
- p.s. While we're at it:
The ScrumMaster acts as a coach for the Scrum Team, helping them to execute the Scrum process. He helps them to work together and to learn the Scrum framework, and protects them from both internal and external distractions. **He may facilitate meetings**, and helps keep the Scrum Team on track, productive, and growing in ability.

Have a happy week,
and don't take me too seriousely - I would be deeply offended if you did...
We're not building nuclear missiles, nor promoting world peace.
It's just software, Try to remember it.
