    Default Periods in Titles

    This is an official request:


    STOP PUTTING PERIODS IN YOUR TITLES!


    You know who you are . . . so stop it already.





    Thanks for your immediate attention to this matter.

    Screw that rag.

    My NYT doesn't use one, and that's all that counts.

    Is this a grammatical thing or a technical thing?

    If the latter, I'll comply. If the former, I refuse. If my title has a subject and a verb, it'll get a period. If not, it'll get treated like a title.

    Discussion of Flowers <-- no period
    Periods in Titles <--- no period

    Let's talk about flowers! <-- punctuation
    Stop using punctuation titles. <--- I refuse.

    The name of a thread needn't be in the form of a title, and so needn't be punctuated as one.

    If there's no technical issue, I'm not gonna comply 'cause you've got an anal retentive issue. That's your thing.
    Let's do this thing.
