    For mapping software I think so. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. I know the ppl at FindWhere use either or depending on locale information.. I think the info is on their site GPS Tracking Solutions for Family, Business, or GPS Partners

    It's a feature of the vBSEO software add-in for the bulletin board.

    There's an option underneath in Miscellaneous Option called "Automatically retrieve titles from external links", if you uncheck it you can turn it off.

    If you go to Edit an existing post, you can get to the Miscellenous Options by clicking "Advanced".
