    No because the entire front page of SO would be flooded with: PLZ HALP URGANT PLLLLLLLLLZZ – Mysticial Feb 26 '15 at 18:16

    @MartinJames No, it would just create more of them. – NoviceSEMetaGeek Feb 26 '15 at 18:23

People are trying to do that quite often, failing spectacularly. I catch myself on trying to do that all the time (which is also, incidentally, the case with GitHub's issue titles).
