One thing I learned from a former boss at a former job is to be VERY specific in email memo lines.
The same applies to eBay

The same holds here. The Community would be better served by better title lines - the responsibility of all of us.
Why do we have "Piggys for Leann" instead of "Topical: pigs on stamps"?
Why do we have "Baaaa! Baaaa!" instead of "Topical: sheep on stamps"?
Why do we have "Checks Mix... It's Tasty", which has nothing to do with food, as it implies?
Cutesy titles are a disservice and should be discouraged from the start and reworded as they come along. It is perhaps unfortunate that creating a new thread in a US or Canadian or postcard category usually means feeling it unnecessary to repeat that same general topic identifier in the title.
