The desire - at least as I intended - was to limit //innefficient conversation//, not limit conversation as a general rule.
But yes - conversation is something that consumes time and energies.
Just like coding, reading, doing sports, eating and sleeping - the idea is to reach a healthy balance. Do enough of each, don't let just one of them hog all your time.
Does this address your worries?Business-focused conversation, specifically conversation about what's to be built, is almost always done too little, not too much. As such, statements about how much to do should urge people to lean toward more, not toward less. Your advice has come across as pushing for less.
- 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.

We're not building nuclear missiles, nor promoting world peace.
It's just software, Try to remember it.
