Question...

Answer?

How many times do people post that in the subject line forcing you to click on it to find someone wanting to know whether anyone is into transcendental meditation?

I wish the subject line would always contain the subject of the post so I can avoid those I'm not interested in or can't help with.

Then there are others: "I wanna know..." or anything ending with "..."

I would think the vast majority of posts are questions or information statements. No need to have this in the subject line.

Very true. I know the whole team of wranglers attempts to keep the odd question lines in check, but with as many posts as we have it's hard to nab 'em all.

It's pretty funny though, some of the subject lines that end up in there. My personal pet peeves involve the ones that have multiple exclamation points or question marks.

We indeed try our best to fix such problems. But, changing a
threads title might confuse people who haven't posted very
often on where there thread has gone. If you do find such a
thread then you can use the "report this post to a moderator"
option that accompanies every post on this board (please say
the title is not "correct") to let us know.
