Is it just me? *grumble*

I'm pretty new around this forum, but I'm already deeply annoyed by all the posts in the Type ID forums that have utterly 100% generic subject headers like "Help identify this font", "What is this type?", "ID Please", etc. Aaaaaarggh!

Make it go away!

Just kidding. I know it won't ever end, but jeez...

On the other hand, those titles are indicative of how valuable Typophile is to the community at large.

I guess font IDs come largely from people who do not hang around here on a regular basis. So all "education" is kind of fighting windmills.
I for one don't mind, on the contrary: Since i watch the Typophile forums via RSS feed in Firefox a line like "What's this bl**dy font" tells me more than "Miniblock", which could be an ID or a release or something completely different.

Doesn’t really bother me either. Fontgrube, just curious as to why you censored the word “bloody” in your post. Is it considered profanity when used in that context where you live?

@Ed_Aranda: AFAIK the software behind many web forums filters non-pc words, so I wouldn't run the risk ;-) In my view it is rather a damn **** US obsession with sex and crime.

Let's see if this goes through :-)

(As for where I live: it depends on how you translate it)

Ok, damn and sex went through. The **** was "f*cking".
Now who is obsessed with "profanity"? :-)))
