I'm reallly not inclined to do so.  It really doesn't matter if you used a 
poor subject line and somebody else did also -- no point arguing over which is 

I will say apparently others also were able to see a hint in "how long will 
this take"?

To make a feeble attempt at explaining the hint I saw -- computers require 
time to perform tasks, so that was a hint to me.

"Have you seen this inside" provides no hint to me.

I would suggest that you take the criticism in stride and try to make better 
subjects in the future.  And, if you can suggest better subjects to someone 
else, that can be acceptable as long as you do it with good will.
