Like "normally" is used in a vote-related discussion to get people to accept an assertion in the absence of evidence for that norm?

"Editorial" has a sense of the editorial opinion column of a newspaper, too. I'm not saying what the intent was in this case, but anyway, someone voting on only the title may be voting randomly. Not much you can do about that.
