    Unless you're just pissin' around, intending to be funny, form a legit title to your thread to garner the appropriate interest instead of being irksome. JMO

    I have always been a fan of real titles for threads here. I like knowing what the discussion is about before clicking.

    It makes it easier to find certain discussions and will keep down repeat threads.

    I don't mind the title being the same as the article's as much as just a link in the OP. A little description beyond the title goes a long way sometimes.

    Thanks to the copyright laws, more people now only include a link, with no other info.

    That should not stop them from providing their own brief description.

    I’m a little dense. Could someone provide some examples of “click bait” titles?
