My point precisely.
I am sure I am not the only one on ATS who thinks titles such as:
Whose Conspiracy is it?
So I went to see Nessie...
are inappropriate titles for threads. A board as large as ATS can not afford to have such ambiguous titles, in my opinion. I can not count how many threads that I could potentially be interested in that I skip over simply for having a ... or an ambiguous question mark at the end of a conspiratorial statement. And I also feel fairly confident that I am not the only one that feels the same way.
Thread titles such as:
Explosion Shuts Down Nuclear Reactor In Sweden
Chinese Sub within range of the 7th Fleet, Surprises the Kitty Hawk
I know it is asking a lot for the Moderators to police the forums to the extent that the titles are as descriptive as that, perhaps the Admin's could lay out some new rules. But moderators and members, please support me that the naming of threads is beginning to get counterproductive. The site has grown so large, and that is a good thing, that I personally do not think ambiguous titles are needed to attract new members, you have your audience already and I know it grows daily.

EDIT: I also feel compelled to mention to the OP that "Just a Thought" is also an equally vague title that would be deemed inappropriate were your suggestion implemented.
