I do wish that online media outlets would design their systems such that when people comment on articles they can't do so unless they've read the article in question. You see so many comments from people who have splattered into action having either just read a provocative headline, or failed to grasp anything other than the most rudimentary understanding of the article.

An example is a headline I saw on the BBC News website saying; "N Korean missile could reach UK in months." Now without reading the story I could be forgiven for thinking it would be travelling very, very slowly and could be shot down quite easily. Another interpretation would be that the N Koreans are sending us one to test as a prelude to an international arms deal...
