Much angst is expressed about comments on the internet, and I've figured out what the problem is. They can be said in an instant and usually are, so they're mostly the first thing that's popped into someone's head.

Think how much better it'd be if they couldn't comment until 24 hours after they'd seen the article or post? That pithy comment they first thought of probably wouldn't be said, either because they realised it's naff, or they've thought of something more profound to say. And after 24 hours of thinking consciously or unconsciously about it, they probably do have something much better to say.

So there you have it - one small step towards fixing the internet. Just add a 24 hour wait before people can comment.
