When retagging Should I upgrade to Ruby 1.9?, I had to edit the title too, because the original was too short.

Is this kind of check intended for mere retags? What happens if someone has the rep to retag a question, but not edit the title without suggestions?

In my opinion, that question is too localized and should not exist at all -- so the reminder that "hey, this question predates our title length rules" is a reminder that we should re-evaluate the whole question not just the title rule..

I wish it were too localized. :( – Andrew Grimm Sep 16 '11 at 0:23
@AndrewGrimm: And yet it is still open. No, wait, I just closed it. – Won't Sep 16 '11 at 14:10
@won I think Andrew was saying it's still relevant since Ruby 1.9 even after a year is still sketchy. I know nothing of this topic.. – Jeff Atwood Sep 17 '11 at 4:45
