The [Vague Thread Titles]

Does anyone else get really annoyed at single word, or very vague, thread subjects?

Things like 'Zermatt', 'Cleaning materials', 'trolling' - how hard is it to add a few words that indicate what the heck it is you want?

Is Zermatt open? What to do in Zermatt? Can trolls buy cleaning materials in Zermatt?

Lots of space to use, folks!

Book titles too.

I thought "Rebecca" was a biography and "The Importance of being Earnest" was a self-help book.

Re: The [Vague Thread Titles]

I think the shorter the thread title, the more mysterious the thread contents could be (I said could).

The are catchier as well, imho.

When the tittle is too long, I must admit I don't read it all.

Ok, my attention span is not what it was

The legacy of the texting generation ...... characters cost money.
