Some forums rely on thread titles for the unique value in their backend DB.  That's why it's usually an administrative function to change the thread title.  Either that, or it would get confusing for people if posters were constantly changing thread titles.

SMF uses sequential numbers to identify threads (you can see from the address bar that this is topic 31.0), so the thread title is inconsequential to the DB.

Sorry.  That's the techie in me rambling..
