From my understanding, editing question titles to correct the spelling or fix the grammar is acceptable, while the substance is to be left alone. However, just now I stumbled upon this question. Its title is
How do I use LaTeX to create table of contents (chapter headings, subsections etc) for a set of pdf files which I am merging into a single large pdf?
which takes up three lines when displayed on the starting page. I regard this as overly verbose and somewhat distracting from the other questions. Therefore, I would like to shorten the title to two lines (say, by discarding the bracket term).
Am I oversensitive or is it acceptable to abridge verbose question titles?
