I find your logic impeccable yet unconvincing.
This is a problem which extends beyond logic. Your arguments can be logically overturned, I don't see any value in doing
that since it doesn't address the real and valid concern you
are attempting to put forward.
Rather I suggest that Perlmonks is popular and well regarded
because of its culture. I say this culture has two core
correctness - care about doing things well in the large and small matters. Ha! note this foofaraw regarding re-titling.
generosity - care about others. As a group, monks kindly treat the naive, lost, and abrasive strangers.
I think the top-node demonstrates a fine sense of generosity in encouraging us to consider the preferences of others.
Applying this to something so subtle and important as habits of thought is worthwhile.
Correctness leads us to not have P3r1munks
painted on our gate. That same desire has us retitling
nodes. This thread is inspired by a marginal case: the
node could reasonably stand with its title. That said, I much prefer that the title was changed.
I feel the "broken window syndrome" is germaine. I am repeatedly impressed by the timeliness of our editors and considerers. I think the speed with which these functions
are executed is important. When a janitor sees a mess
and quickly moves to clean it up I find myself reluctant to criticize: It's too clean.
