    I got there a couple of hours ago: Incoming utility cable capacity - A cautionary tale

    Forum software redirects the link but doesn't update descriptions in all prior postings. This has both positive and negative sides to it but it is what it is.

    The first title was something like:
    EXPLOSION AND FIRE!! - How NOT to Impress Your Neighbors with Your Model S

    On a moderator first past at this, the inflammatory bits were edited out to leave:
    How NOT to Impress Your Neighbors with Your Model S

    I think now it's simply:
    Incoming utility cable capacity - A cautionary tale

    While less exciting, it's more accurate.

    Please try to use accurate and descriptive titles. This is a discussion forum, not a tabloid.

    Also please trust the judgement of the moderators instead of assuming the worst and going off the deep end.

    I can only see about 34 characters of thread titles. Less with the word "Sticky: in front of them.

    I (now) try to think of how to maximize the first 3 words for thread content definition.
