Editors changing title and adding links: is this right?Webmasters,
This is with reference to my article: How to apply for Nokia handset insurance plans in India.
My objections to what the editor has done are as follows:
1. A question mark was needlessly added at the end of the title. In a title, it is not at all necessary to add a question mark.
2. In the text of my article, 8 links have been added. Why?
I do not think it is correct to: (a) put in so many links (b) put in links to other pages which are not even my posts & thereby change my article.
Furthermore: (i) one of the links is not even correct and (ii) it was nowhere mentioned in the contest announcement that we should give links to any internal pages.
Please clarify why editors are being allowed to do this as nowhere at any other site (ISC or any partner site) have I seen this happening. I have a great respect for editorial work but I just do not think it is right for an editor to change an article except perhaps to make small changes such as a typo error or close a tag which was mistakenly open.
