I'm really glad to learn that at least some mainstream Imams have noticed the blatant disrespect that's shown to the Quran during the Tarawih prayers.  My husband keeps complaining of the same.  We used to go to the masjid for Tarawih together.  But now we stopped since the last 3 or 4 years and instead read the Quran at home every night after Isha and Nafl salat al-Leyl.  We think that it surely feels nice to stand up for prayer and hear the recitations of the Great Quran in a congregation amongst our brothers & sisters.  But what's the use if the imam leading the Tarawih prayers recites the Quran at the speed of a super sonic aircraft?  Even those fluent in Arabic couldn't understand a word of what that imam would recite.  I also totally agree that it's not compulsory to finish the Quran during Ramadan.  I don't know from where Muslims derived that notion.  I'll do some research to find out if it crept from the Hadith.  What's compulsory in Ramadan is to devote more time to the Quran which doesn't refer to reading more pages but to understanding more of whatever we read, even if it's 2 pages a day.  And of course that can only be done by thinking and reflecting constantly over every ayah we read.

Thanks for this encouraging post, sister Zeynab.  I think those imams who think similarly as the author of this article should get together and address this issue so that those disrespectful imams reading at a break neck speed are stopped from such misdeeds.
