Headline? Allow Me.

Note: as editor-in-chief of this enterprise, I reserve the right to headline your piece as I see fit. Now, if you've got a headline to suggest, by all means do so - but I'll probably slap my own one on there instead. No offense. This is a general exception to the "no editing of submissions" rule (together with the "opt-in editing" option announced in the previous post).

The reason for this policy is: verisimilitude. Go ask any of your top pro journalists, they'll all tell you: some other moron always comes up with the headline that gets slapped across their hard-written story.
