the need for a title in a reply (?)

I've noticed that when replying to a post, it prompts for a title.  The response title however is never displayed although it is editable.

I was originally going to log this as a bug.  The title seems to be a bit of misfit for a response, but perhaps it server a purpose that is not obvious such as easier reading in the db? (perhaps something legacy?)

I think it could be removed all together or be display  (as a reminder when replying) as a non-editable field.  Having the user edit a title that (appears) to have no purposes is a bit misleading.

Yeah, the UI should be removed. It's kind of a legacy thing, as there were variations in the previous UI where it was used. I don't mind keeping the column there, but it doesn't need to hang out. Feel free to file a bug, and I'll get it.
