# Should $\LaTeX$ be disabled in question titles due to ${\huge weird formatting?}$ $${\frac{\frac{\text{this is}}{a~very~ugly}}{\huge title}}$$

I definitely prefer $\LaTeX$ in the body of a question. It's sharp, easy to read and adds a lot of quality.

However, in the title I find it highly disturbing. It also destroys the nice look on the 'Questions' page, if people put weird commands (or huge equations) into the title and it gets formatted.

Thus, is it worth disabling it?

I've added the Tag bug, because it might be unintended behavior. Although one could argue this simply is a feature...

• Granting that this title is ugly, it's also so amusing that I can't bring myself to "quiet down" your very effective demonstration of the problem. At least, not here on Meta where there's little damage to be done. – Air Jan 3 '17 at 19:38

Stack Exchange does have the ability to block certain titles by a regex match. For example, on Mathematics site  is blocked in titles, which is meant to disallow displayed formulas in titles. This was done because there was enough such occurrences in practice, not because of "someone could" concerns. (Mathematics gets over 100 times as many questions as Engineering, and the proportion of formula-heavy posts is also higher.)
