Listening Why did they changed the thread title?

Why did they changed the name of my thread??? I was not asking only for opinions about the book, I was also asking something else... can anybody tell me why did they change the name of my thread? It was not nothing insulting or bad behavior...

Thank you for the feedback.

We change thread titles from non-specific generic titles to more specific ones to better reflect the content of the post.

This will help in making the forums more easily searchable by our engine.

If there are thousands of posts with the title "please help" or "what's your opinion" that will make the forums look silly and redundant.

Also, our forum rules that you have agreed to when you registered, specifically mentions that moderators reserve the rights to edit any post or thread in the forum.

If you think there's a better specific title for your thread please contact us and we'll change it for you.
