We get some really bad subject lines on SO, and also in some of the other forums I use. Examples:
- Consuming web service
- Weird WebService behavior
- Soap header
- WCF help
Now, easy as it may be to attribute these titles to laziness or cluelessness, I've begun to wonder if it may not be something else.
This is a site used by people from all around the world. Does everyone have the same concept of what a title line is meant for and how to construct one? These very short title lines look more like categories than titles. Maybe the authors came from a culture (or even school) where categories were used in this way?
In any case, I wonder not only if there are legitimate differences in how people understand what's meant to be in a title line, but also what, if anything, we should do about this.
