As an extension to this post, are warnings about titles really necessary for high-rep users?

You get this warning just because you have a word like 'you' in your title.


I was wondering if high-rep users could have these disabled. I currently have over 11k on my home site, but I find that in order to avoid these annoying 'warnings' I need to memorize some keywords not to use.

Any message that warns of behaviour shown to be indicative of poor quality questions should be shown to a user regardless of their reputation.

Just because someone has a lot of reputation doesn't mean that they're automatically any good at asking questions. After all, they could have earned all their reputation from answers.

    "After all, they could have earned all their reputation from answers." That makes no sense. If you've managed to earn 20k rep from answers, then clearly you've read a lot of questions. You've read lots of good ones and lots of bad ones. The problem with the message is that it has lots of false positives. I asked this perfectly reasonable question a couple days ago, and I have no idea why it triggered this popup. Dec 28, 2015 at 17:01

    @NicolBolas I think that is the real issue, the method of determining subjectivity and other issues is very inaccurate, to say the least.

What is so horrible in this warning? It does not block you from asking, just act as a friendly warning that the question might be closed, so that you won't be surprised if it does.

I don't think it should be disabled.
