(2) It gives you more time to collect and organise your thoughts in a presentable way.
(3) It leaves a written record of the explanation.

I know it's more work to communicate in writing, and I know it takes more time. The end result is often better for it, though.

Paper is patient. Well, textboxes are patient.
