Every day we have new users posting questions like this (10k required, or soon to be). These are not questions that will ever help the site in any way and, as more and more of them show up, more and more time is spent by folks closing, deleting, down-voting, disparaging, what have you.
I think it would be reasonable to impose a requirement that they must visit the FAQ (and in fact earn the analytical badge) before they can post a question. This is different from other requirements that have been requested, such as minimum rep.
This is not a difficult badge to earn and does not seem to be a big imposition - and in fact can prevent users from having a negative first experience. No, it still won't guarantee that they actually read the thing, but it at least stresses the importance of understanding how the site works before firing away.
