OK, so I realize I am one the few (only?) people who might actually care about this, but that's just part of what gives me my undeniable charm, no?
A while back I noticed that someone had posted a topic with the title
Anyone else having ? on Dexcom G4 receiver + pump?
Upon reading I realized that the topic title was apparently meant to be
Anyone else having
on Dexcom G4 receiver + pump?
but for some reason, the Discourse platform was converting the 3 question marks
??? in the title into a single question mark, '?'.
This sort of thing bothers me, so I dug into it by posting about it to meta.discourse.org (link below).
Unable to edit topic title to change "?" into "?" (3 question marks in a row)
The answer, not surprisingly (to me), was that this is not a bug, but a feature. Discourse apparently has a "title prettify" setting in its admin/settings which removes the extra question mark. So, one rather "ham-handed" (IMO) way around this would be to change this setting.
Another way … and better in my opinion … is to just use an alternate Unicode character for
? such as perhaps ︖ or �. Yet another work-around is to use
? ? ?, where blanks have been inserted between the question marks.
So, alrighty then! Problem "solved" (kinda, sorta).
