Would it be possible to lean on the suppliers of the B-Board system to change the title of the required "Title" fill-in box to something like "Topic" or "Subject" or the like? This is the box that you get when you click on "Start new Topic".
Many of the posting show only "Mr." or "Ms" or "Association President" as the title. This conveys no information as to the real content of the posting. It's natural as the newbies (guests, usually) take the word to be asking for their titles, not a "title" for the posting. This makes it hard to select those that fit one's specialty (if any) to respond to.
