Don't worry about it.

I don't know how many threads and posts MyBB.com gets per day, but I bet it's a lot.

Because of the high traffic that MyBB.com does get, it's hard to monitor every single post until someone does report it. 

Unfortunately, all of those 'Help Me' posts are still being read and a few are an actual legit need for help, but because the original author did not bother to read the rules of MyBB.com, their posts get locked.

A few of them did learn their lesson and posted a new thread with a better title, which makes the future search of similar topics easier to find.

Putting a prefix probably won't stop people from reading those posts anyways. 
It's like putting a 'Do Not Walk On The Grass' on a lawn but you do see footprints on the grass.
So... what's the point of putting a prefix on 'Help Me' posts when people are still going to read them.
