Verbal tic bait, "I" in the title.: If You Know What I Mean get usage counts

So If You Know What I Mean has the same problem that Or So I Heard once had, it is often used as a verbal tick. Plus it has "I" in the title which is conversation the the main page sign. It currently has over 5000 wicks but only a few of them used correctly. However, it seems to be a valid trope. What to do?

I put in a custom title request to have it show up as If You Know What I Mean.

Eh, Eddie, you already know renames are exactly what custom title requests are not for, right?

Can I call for burden of proof? The time Understatement came into TRS on the grounds of being Verbal Tic, the defense was that it was, technically speaking, being used correctly.

But there's no "I" in Understatement. There is an "I" in If You Know What I Mean.

[Edit]: Seems changed.

^^Not sure how you got the idea that custom titles are not for renames. Anyway, this one's over.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
