Nope, it would only leave the 'Re:'s out of the title field, people could still change the titles, just not the number of 'Re:'s (stripping out any leading 'Re:'s would also be an idea). The depth wouldn't be off either if it was done properly, a thread's nodes aren't grouped by their titles.

As for display, I like the Re(3): format.

Update: Oops, might have misinterpreted your post. Are you referring to when a thread goes off-topic, someone changes the title to say "An off-topic node about cheese", and then the next reply is "Re: An off-topic node about cheese?" If this is the case, you're right, with my suggestion the reply might be "Re(3): An off-topic node about cheese" instead. It's a good point, but I don't think it's a major problem.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
