If we consider merlyn
's motivation, it seems that he wanted to identify his own posts, I suppose in order to be able to skip them. Since Newest Nodes
lists the name of the poster, I'm not sure why he needs to do this. I kinda wish merlyn
had commented on this -- but I understand his schedule may not permit visiting PM as often as some.
Perhaps the solution would be to add (authour) to the end of a title found by Super Search, as Newest Nodes does. Dingbats would then be unnecessary.
Short answer: I prefer not to see them; reply titles are complicated enough already.

Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
