So, I've been seeing waaaaay more of these "catch-all" threads than we used to have: NDP, Palestine, Thomas Mulcair, one for each federal party, China, etc.
There's nothing wrong with these threads, of course, and folk tend to like them, but I just want to encourage babblers when they start threads to think about the headline as the thing that will bring people to the discussion. "China #2" doesn't do much, whereas "Diplomatic resolution sought in South China Sea standoff" is pretty good, even if it takes its headline from a NYT article. Even better is: "China: Did I taw a coup d'etat?" because it is original, clever and clear about the topic under discussion.
It's not every day you get to pretend you're the headline editor for a major news organization (like rabble.ca!). So make 'em count!
This has been a public service announcement.
