Journal: Why won't some guys here RTFA?

Journal by Prodigy Savant

The most annoying thing I find here on /. is that so many peoply post without reading the original article.
It takes me anywhere from 15mins to half an hour (or sometimes more) to read the article... by the time I am back to the slashdot post, soooo many posts come up! 10s to 100s! I guess a lot of guys are not RTFA and just posting, sometimes even getting modded favorably.
Maybe there should be a half hour delay -- after someone opens up the /. post, he/she can only post after 20 mins?
Maybe even after this, some GNAA post is gonna be first... but anyhow, people will have time to read the post.
I am sure the editors here must have thought up ways to ensure higher quality posts (no, I am not saying that most comments are not high quality).

Suggestions anyone?

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
