It's irritating to go to a thread and then check a link to the reference article or info and then there's nothing there to support the thread topic. You people just waste everyone's time.

For once I'd like to read a thread title that's exactly reflective of the article or info cited.

True but it's a cheap way to get more clicks.

Eventually posters who post actual good stuff get recognized by their username. And other posters get recognized for the kinds of things they tend to contribute.

A large part of GLP posters go a way further from merely "catchy titles"; many of them are so badly exaggerated they seem like parodies of the lunatic fringe.

There's a lot of humour at this site, some of the thread titles are parodies of other thread titles.

They do that so that people click on their thread in the first place.

Take your thread title for instance OP, it's the most fucking boring title I have ever had the misfortune to see, you are damned lucky I clicked on it!
