Non descriptive thread title
#10
This we started to handle mainly bots. Some smart bots started making random legit questions and when you answer they just edit the main post with spams later. The only identification was their timeline-depended changing naming pattern and 'Non-descriptive Thread Title'. Search for "Please help me a question" and see how many threads have been made with that title. If we don't close these threads they eventually will edit the main post to spam and editing doesn't pull the thread in recent (new / today's) list, hence the spam remains unnoticed.

We are here to help our members and there is no intention to be harsh with them. Even 99%+ users create at least understandable subjects, if not - once getting closed they learn and make better title. They are human, legit members.

Extended: Proper thread title is helpful to search issues and troubleshooting in a handy way. Thread with title "Help me urgent" containing some critical guideline will be lost over time and not be easily search able leading to repeated brainstorming for the same issue.
