Stop Making Post Titles Too Long to Re!

Okay, this is a silly complaint but I'm going to make it anyway. Perhaps people have noticed sometimes I respond to a post in a comment with the title of this post. It's pretty self explanatory. When I hit the submit button on my comment, I can't post it because the post title is beyond the character limit. So I put this as my standard reply to send a message to the original poster. I find the lack of being able to Re easily, a highly annoying and rude from the people who run the site. The least you can do is keep your titles manageable so we can respond to them without having to make up some other title when the best way to describe is actually Re+post title. It's a small thing and it won't keep me from commenting but I think it would make things more user friendly.

Although perhaps there is some sort of user setting where I can up the 50 character limit. If there is, then please point it out to me. Anyhow, I'm not really mad I just wanted to have something "down on paper" so to speak.

I agree that the bug is however rather annoying, however. I've trained myself to clear out the subject title, that's the beauty of being a great ape, you can train yourself.

I'm guessing or hoping the new platform will tackle this issue.

I'll also say that I enjoy reading your comments. Thanks.

A very annoying bug.  On other blogs, when you go to reply the subject line starts blank and you have to put your own in.  On dailykos in particular a lot of people tend to start phrases or full sentences in their title and finish their thought in the comment body.  On mydd I don't even bother to read the titles because they're almost always just a Re:, since that's the default.

I kind of like it when that happens...gives me a chance to hold my (metaphorical) tongue.
