I'm assuming that this submission's headline differs from the original ("He Got Greedy") to make it more useful for HN readers...but I wish it were how other reputable news sites, such as The Washington Post, constructed their linkbaity headlines: `the-short-answer: the linkbait phrase`

As a reader, it makes me no-less interested in the content.

If your story's so weak that disclosing basic who / what / where information in the headline kills its value, you don't have a story.

Drives me nuts.
