The Original article was posted at 01:43PM
There were 6 comments when I started my post. By the time I finished the five or six paragraphs of My comments it was 02:13PM, and 186 posts!
How the hell do you expect anybody to really read the article, digest it and respond intelligently in less than a half of an hour? I mean absolutely no one is going to read my (Score:1) post way down there! So doesn't this system reward those who are quickest to the draw? And thus those posts that are stupid one liners, uninformed opinion pieces, trolls, or all of the above?
Me thinks there should be at least a 15 minute delay between the publishing of the original article and the acceptance of the "first post."
