Journal: Time to post. 1

Journal by Stephen King
Why must I wait 20 seconds before I can submit my posts? It doesn't take very long to remind people that I'm not dead. From what I read here, the "editors" certainly don't waste any time proofreading (or checking links) before they submit stories, so why do they make us wait to post a comment?
