As a relatively recent arrival to Level 6: Friar I've noticed one particularly unhealthy pattern: requests to retitle SoPW nodes because the OP had some problem code but misunderstood where the problem is. In other words, the suggested title reflects the answers to the question, rather than the question itself as the OP understood it.

To me, the importance of this goes beyond respecting authorship. The reason for preserving such titles is that a future seeker with a similar problem is probably more likely to frame their query in the way the OP did than in what the responses reflected. Please take care not to change the meaning of titles in this way.
