If you don't mind. People don't do this with Ron Paul all the time....
People do this all the time PERIOD.
This very thread for example: Thread Titles and How They Quietly Attempt To Throw Doubt On Topics
The subjects of the title are intermingled....
This title makes multiple statements.
This is not necessarily an evil thing, or a disingenuous one.
Thread creators (aside from the Breaking news types victimized by the MSM's poor habits) are often faced with the challenge of overcoming the brevity
required in their headline, without detracting from the subject matter.
Some resort to emotionalism, hyperbole, sensationalism, sophistry, among other more subtle styles.
Personally, I find this among the more amusing things to ponder as I decide which thread I may read first.
I have my own set of standards for title creation. Others have their own. Taking adherence to the T&C for granted, much of what we see, while, as
the OP points out, carries bias, or double entendre, I suspect it is not as intentional as one might think. I think more often, it is an accidental
revelation of the bias, or position of the member bringing the OP.
Excellent subject for discussion by the way!
