I have a sense that adding MathJax to titles can interfere with questions being picked up correctly by search engines, and so the practice is discouraged when not particularly helpful.
I think I've had my question titles edited to remove mathjax in the past, and for this reason.
However I can't substantiate nor confirm any of this.
I keep wanting to edit the title of this question
Do all rigid bodies of radius $r$ have at least one stable orbit with perihelion $p$ such that $2r >p > r$?
because it would look essentially the same without MathJax:
Do all rigid bodies of radius r have at least one stable orbit with perihelion p such that 2r > p > r?
Is there some standard, convention, or consensus on the use of MathJax in titles in cases where it doesn't seem to be necessary? Would making this change be considered heavy-handed?
