Something I have been wondering about.
I have seen people remove latex from question titles, replacing it with a general phrase describing the kind of problem being solved.
For example, instead of "how to solve $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$", the title is replaced with "How can I solve this quadratic?".
It was mentioned by one user that this was done for more appropriate indexing or something of that affect. I observed this some time ago, so I have forgotten the exact reasoning.
Is this something common? Is it something I should look out for? Or is latex generally acceptable in titles and could even be an improvement?
The only negative I see is that it makes it appear that the site is used as a repository for specific homework questions.
