    It's not just "circlejerk without context" - the admins have previously stated that they would give regular updates given that they've quadrupled site traffic in less than a week. Secondly, they're trying to let those who are still dealing with long lag times know that it should be improving, which would help with those users' frustrations. Lastly, you're really putting the admins in a lose-lose situation here - if they didn't post the small updates and there were extended periods of silence, there would be cries about lack of transparency by the admins or lack of efforts being put into improve the site. Have some empathy, please.

      Im just asking for context.

      Its different optimizacions changing mysql to cassandra, to buy servers, to cache things. So I could expect more or less lag in what?

        And that's fine - there are a lot of users here for whom this small update will be satisfactory, and for some (like yourself) that have a much more technical understanding of sites, you're going to want more meat to the updates. All you need to do is ask or PM an admin politely - if they're too busy, they might not be able to answer right away, but empathy and friendliness will get you far.
