Okay, my two cents: Nothing will prevent people from posting questions poorly. However, we do not have to approve all the poorly-asked questions. I don't think the engine needs work; the engineers may want to shift attitudes. No sense approving a post, then complaining about it.
It might be useful to send an automatic message of some kind to those whose poorly-written posts are not approved after a day. By that time, it's fair to say that nobody remains with the ability and desire to approve.
Sorry, your post [help my perl script do not work] was not approved.

Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
