Whoever edited the title of this submission (it used to be "when Spotify wasn’t playing audio, it was using my network connection. A lot.") just took the whole thread out of context. This was never about the blog post, it was about the specific paragraph referencing Spotify and its P2P-ness.

The people editing the titles just to match the original source are driving me nuts.

I don't care how cute or clever the author was in picking a title. I want to know what the damn thing is about so I can make a good decision whether or not to spend time reading it! A good HN title should efficiently communicate to me why I should click on this link.

The original title was interesting. This one is not: the only reason I clicked on it again was because it had a high number of votes and comments.
