  • @jjn - yeah. but seems to me that fetching with answers comments and body did not previously demonstrate such latency but I have no metrics. thanks for the perspective. Aug 26, 2010 at 18:43

Its slow because the response is so large, and it touches a large amount of data per-question (all answers and comments, by definition).

Its equivalent to visiting every question on the first couple pages of SO, after all.
