Not a lot of "creative juice" here… Not a lot of neologistic mojo, either.
But just the titles are bad. The topics are often good, as are many of the comments. (Of course, as is usual, most comments are insipid or worse.) But they aren't -those good topics, the good comments- pursued: Not by many. That's the nature of the Net…
A magazine without an editor is — what? The Dead Letter office.
I remember when MyOpera mods would insist that thread titles needed to be appropriately descriptive (…presumably because their search algorithms were piss-poor facsimiles, hence the titles needed to give all the clues needed…). Well, they gave up.
(Both posters and publishers.)
Perhaps our mods should become editors in the traditional sense: Titles have -for as long as I've known- been the purview of editors…
You've seen what happens when incompetent editors insist upon titles who no one would likely care about. And you've seen what happens when there is no editorial control whatsoever…
There is a middle course.
(Mods: Are you willing to exchange ideas with posters…? Before they initiate new threads?)
