No. It's there because people would make topics named like "Hi help me please my broadband tv phone keeps disconnecting and I don't know what to do. Help me please. Please. Please. I'm so desperate. Help."

That's an example of too many words in a topic name and yes people did and do post topic names that needlessly long. I.E. they were/are basically trying to type the equivalent of their life story into the topic name field which if put with too many needless details makes it harder for staff and contributors to get a gist of what the problem is before clicking into it.

So if you had a broadband problem, say the WiFi connection dropping, make a topic called "WiFi dropouts." If you wanted to specify what expect is dropping out, say that you have an iphone dropping off the WiFi, name the topic "iphone WiFi dropouts". Or if you had a TiVo which keeps rebooting name the topic "TiVo keeps rebooting"

Edit: Added a missed word.
