Ha. Got your attention.

What does a title have to include for you to read the post? Anything that catches your attention more than something else?

Is there anything within a title that will turn you off from reading the post?

For me, I read most posts and respond when I have something to say about it.

But if the title is misspelled (blatantly not one of those maybe auto-corrected things) or is filled with poor grammar, I won't bother. I don't want to have to decipher a post that isn't even written in mostly proper English.

I really look at subject lines. If they are vague, I usually skip it. My CM time is short!

In this group I try to respond to everything. In other groups I typically only read it if the title looks interesting.

Here in this group, I try to at least read each post.  I may not have a contribution, but I do try to read each one.
