There are good questions and there are bad questions. The bad questions are those "my class/spec has a problem, can you fix it?" The better questions are those with a broader focus. Sadly damage dealers apparently don't have many good questions at all.
The best question I feel was asked so poorly that it lost its value. I feel the question about an in game combat log parser like Recount would be a valuable addition. However the person who asked the question asked for damage and healing meter which is completely the wrong approach. Combat log parsing addons like Recount provide way more useful information than simply a number. You can see singificantly better death logs. You can see damage/healing break downs by ability. So you can see when someone other than a tank takes a lot of damage its because they were standing in fire too much. Or you can see that another player of the same spec performs much better than you and look at what abilities they used in what distribution in order to hopefully improve your own performance. Because they asked for a damage and healing meter the question was severely devalued. I think everyone would agree though that the in game combat log is worthless and is overdue for some new ways to actually get at the information that is important while in the game and not needing to use an addon for it or wait to view a log parse after your night is done.
