I hate tabloidy headlines with question marks. As in "Queen Elizabeth: Is She a Transvestite?", "The Moon: Is It Made of Cheese?" or "Linkbait: Will It Ever End?".

I forget where I first heard this (the idea isn't mine) but I believe that in almost every case, the answer is "No." Then, the article usually goes on to explain why not.
