    ...do this.

    I quit, for the most part, clicking on this type of thread because they were generally posts that few people would click if the title revealed the point of the post. I think that good people of TB click these with the hope of finding a topic as interesting as "All About Tort" or something where they can be of help (like "How can I get more Tort onto my short-scale P? In my case, are any of you psychologists who can help me with my seeming inability to turn a blind eye to general stupidity? Keep in mind that I do literally (and I literally mean "literally" when I say "literally") wear rose-colored sunglasses everyday but it doesn't help block out the inanity of the world. But I digress).

    Occasionally, I will click on an incomplete-idea-of-a-title if there is even a slight hint that the post might not be retar, um, inane- not unlike this one- but even then I'm often let down. Even this one isn't as inane as it might first appear. Think about it.

    Since YOU clicked on this thread with an incomplete title, I would like to know why you clicked on it.

    I decided to add a poll but I certainly left out a lot of valid reasons, reasons that haven't occurred to me because I am arrogant, self-centered and unable to put myself into the shoes of others. So, in the spirit of a "good" free-form jazz explosion, let's hear your ramblings if my poll doesn't have your reason.

    First, from the title of this thread, I knew exactly what it was going to be about.

    Second, I will sometimes just hover my mouse over the title, which then reveals the start of the content, which gives me more info, without actually clicking.

    Third, sometimes I just see who started the thread, and decide if even hovering is worth while.
