This is sort of a version of this question.
I just reviewed an edit on How do I apply parameters to specific kernels with GRUB 2? that wanted to remove GRUB 2 from the title, because "tag-like titles should be in the tags". But by the time I had typed out:
Tags are fine in titles. We would end up with some very obtuse titles if we enforced this rule.
Someone else had approved the edit. I then re-edited "GRUB 2" back in since I believe the edit is a bad one that changed the meaning of the question.
I'm trying to imagine people asking shell oriented questions without being allowed to use the word "shell", etc, since that's a tag. I'm hoping we can come to some consensus about this here to help prevent the proliferation of a bad, impromptu rule.
Why this is a bad, improptu rule:
After a bit of dialogue with Braiam, I admit I don't think it is necessarily wrong to remove a tag from a title, it's removing a tag from a title simply because it's a tag. If someone removes or moves a word for the purpose of improving readability, grammar, etc., great. But propagating the idea that tags should be removed from titles just because is a not good -- if you can't justify the edit some other way (e.g., on the basis of readability) then don't do it. If you can, then it's probably fine. This case is a good example of why.
The original title was "grub - How do I apply parameters to specific kernels?", which looks a little like the OP was imitating a style encouraged by S.E. itself, which auto-appends a tag in the page <title>1. Chirp later capitalized GRUB. Then Braiam changed the title to "How do I apply parameters to specific kernels?", which changes the meaning of the question.
I think that is hard to justify if the reason is readability, because thinking about readability implies thinking about meaning -- part of "Does this read well?" is, "Is the meaning clear?". But thinking about a rule, "Must remove tags from titles" does not require thinking about the meaning of the question, and applying it as such will change the meaning of some questions.2
There seems to be some consensus that "How do I apply parameters to specific kernels with GRUB 2?" is fine; IMO that's probably the best choice, and one that would be naturally obvious if the imperative was, "How can I make this read better?" and not "How can I get this tag out of the title?"
1 Which appears in the title bar and is used by search engines, etc. I had not actually noticed this before, and to be honest it seems like "excessive featurism", someone hammering out code for the sake of coding, and not something that serves a real purpose; the tag is simply auto-selected on the basis of it's popularity. No doubt this leads to some stupid looking or inappropriate <title>'s...it also seems to be part of the reason for consternation about tags at the beginning of the user composed title.
2 Removing tags from titles could be done mechanistically, in which case we'd have a bad automated feature (remove tag from question) compensating for another bad automated feature (add tag to page title).
