Based on the observation that some specific words in the title are a strong indicator of a bad question title, Jeff decided to simply disallow "Help" (or "Question" or "Problem") in the titlessimply disallow "Help" (or "Question" or "Problem") in the titles.

The problem with this is that it does not automatically lead to a better title – it has mainly the effect that the bad titles are less easily found now. (And some rare legitimate titles, like in this example, are banned, too.)

Maybe a better way of doing this would be to put these questions (even if the user changed the "forbidden" word away) automatically on the review-page.
