Taking two steps backward and then falling onto your face is progress...sort of.

Still dumb, but somewhat less annoying. I guess that's...good?

This space for rent!

Until I stumbled upon this thread, I hadn't even noticed them. Then I spent the next 10 minutes cracking up while reading everyone's "adjustments".

Right justified, unbolded looks fine to me.

I still find them annoying, especially because of that horizontal line.

How about using the CSS visibility property to hide titles that are the same as the thread title?

Yay for IB-Dick. This right-justify idea of IB-Dick's is excellent! In all honesty, I don't even notice the titles anymore, but this might be monitor resolution dependent. Win-win-win!

Manipulating the titles should affect the Google AdSense ad placement.

Re: What's with the automatic titles in posts?

One more tweak would be to remove the full line beneath and just have a line under the length of the title text on the right.

Re: Hot Man Chicken

I think I'm the only one who dislikes them even more right-aligned. Oh well, I adapt easily enough.

IB-Dick, I'm not entirely sure three titles are necessary.

Would it have helped if I described the objects, or perhaps mentioned how to align them?

Aligned ritght ismy preference. That goes for the titles as well.

Re: What's with the automatic titles in posts?

So, if we have more of the same words in a thread, that thread will be higher up on google searches? That could make for some interesting phrases being used.

"IB-Dick" should lead to odd ads

The redundant post titles are screen clutter, plain and simple, and this is the only major forum I've seen that's taking this approach to manipulating Google AdSense.

In the advanced reply mode, the titles are still showing up bold and left-aligned.

If you must list a title with every post, how about putting it in the table row to the left of the post number? That kludge, however, doesn't alter the fact that listing the same titles over and over constitutes spam. Surely, a competent PHP programmer could use a thread's posts to manipulate AdSense without changing the content users actually read.

Comments in this line are larger than they appear

meh. I still don't like the whole idea of it, regardless of where it's positioned. This and the new "pop-up" thing are adding a crapload of clutter where clutter need not be.

I like its purpose, but agree that it should only appear when hovering over the link itself.

You mean the alt-text for links in the main forum? I'm still undecided on that one.
