in thread Consider this: What makes a good node title?

Let me qualify a bit what I said. I didn't really think it was unarguable, but I fell into the temptation of borrowing the wording from your original post. :-) Sorry about that.

I also guessed what the node might be about, so I'll agree that it wasn't impossibly obscure. But I found it a bit ambiguous, and subject to improvement.

The fact that I think it is a poor node title doesn't indicate an absolute quality about the title? Of course, I agree with that. That's exactly why we can vote on considerations: if enough people vote to "keep" the original title, it doesn't need to be changed. That way several viewpoints are taken into account.

    True. And really, those are exactly the people whom I am addressing with this post. Many considerations are voted on without... well... without a whole lot of consideration. In the end, I'm just trying to raise consciousness about it. I think that, the more thought people put into it, the less enthusiastic they will be about retitling. And, I believe that's a good thing (after having put in quite a bit of thought on the subject myself.)
