I would just rather hear the professor have time to cover what we're supposed to be covering/what will be on the exam than to hear someone ask inconsequential questions just to flex for no reason
My attitude (probably wrong) has been that the curve makes how much ground the professor covers kind of irrelevant.
My professors have said the exam will only consist of material we actually cover. That might make your attitude towards gunners vary. If you think you are better than your peers at disseminating large amounts of information, gunners, hold thine tongues. If analyzing the heck out of a small set of topics suits your strengths, you should start a point system to reward gunners asking the greatest number and the most time consuming questions!
