In the custom hardware form, one moderator has being forcibly changing the topic names to things like "In which xxx fails to understand yyy".

Few reasons why I'm against this:

1. It's confusing, especially when that mod edits without the edit showing up on the timestamp
2. It's putting words in other people's mouth
3. It's a micro form of public shaming for lack of knowledge / stupidity

Mod edits should clearly be marked as such, and they need to be objective (or reconsider people with mod powers that treats this forum as a playground).

More examples:

We were always at war with oceania (Ozzian BS cut from the Avalon tree)

WOW! Becoin failed to read and comprehend BFL's policy on BTC refunds

Edit: just came across more:

"... and please do not quote a part of a post of mine where you have edited that quoted text ... you have edited a few of my posts ..."

Crazyates' OT misguided whining from the avalon thread
   
Re: [topic topiary] Trolling thread topologically tossed from the terrane

This is looking more like a joke board now.

I believe that stupid people need to be told so, otherwise they will continue to say stupid things embarrassing themselves and their kin.

Tip Me if believe BTC1 will be worth $1 Million within 10 years

The correct approach would be to delete the entire thread. Spray 'em with Troll-B-Gone.

It's either this, or the renaming. To quell the anti-censorists(is that even a word??), I'd say the latter works better.
There's no pleasing everyone.

Deleting them would be significantly better than renaming titles to ridiculous ones
