I sympathize. Many times I see a question I know
I could answer (and thus advance on the road of Monkly Enlightenment), but The Usual Suspects have beaten me too it by a minute or so.
I also sympathize in that I don't spend all day watching to see if a new question has been poasted. It's not that one takes a long time in reading a post, it's that one may only look at Perl Monks two or three times a day.
Having said all that, though, I disagree with your proposal. The point in being here is to be helpful, not to be first. (Funny thing is, I considered posting something similar to this after I'd been here a few months...)
