Good point then I would say then, don't remove it.

It may happen by accident, and the reason for requiring it for a post is so it makes life easier to implement this rfc. Otherwise if there was a case which there was no post subject for whatever reason, then on the forum list it would look ugly as you'd have an empty blank space. So....

if (strlen(post_subject) is 0) then
let post_subject = "Re: " + topic_title
That's the solution I personally feel we should go with as well then.
