[Titles] Should the most relevant tag be included in the title?

When a question is “very strongly” associated with a particular “tag”, I like it when that question's title is prefixed with that tag. For example:

  • vim: how do I move to the left?
  • python: what's the runtime of list.pop?
  • html: how do I make text bold?

I've had a few people tell me not to do this, though… So I'm wondering: is there a published community guideline on this issue? Has it been discussed somewhere?

    This stinks of message boards, where they don't have tags. SO is not a message board. Lose that habit; it is not helpful here. – Lightness Races in Orbit Jul 18 '11 at 6:19
