 > Why are we not just filtering `'the_title'`?

 The problem : what is the best moment to filter it ? For a bbPress plugin
 (support topic) i've played in this area and it's quite complex.

 {{{get_the_title()}}} (the function where the_title filter is) can be used
 - in meta tags (eg: the facebook og:title meta as explained
 alexander.rohmann in a previous comment)
 - in breadcrumbs
 - in widgets
 - in footer

 When are we absolutely sure to be in the targetted entry title ? I'd say
 never. There's no hooks before or after that is precise enough from my
 point of view.

 You can wait wp_head, but then sidebar ? Sidebar can be in the header
 template of the theme (eg: twentyfifteen), or after the_content? So you
 need to [https://github.com/imath/buddy-bbPress-Support-
 Topic/blob/master/includes/functions.php#L105 toggle a global] to
 true/false on the [https://github.com/imath/buddy-bbPress-Support-
 Topic/blob/master/buddy-bbpress-support-topic.php#L179 hooks]
 {{{dynamic_sidebar_before}}} / {{{dynamic_sidebar_after}}}

 And if the theme has breadcrumbs... Then you need to leave a way for the
 user to filter your [https://github.com/imath/buddy-bbPress-Support-
 Topic/blob/master/includes/functions.php#L661 filter]

 So IMHO, the best choices are : remove links in title as johnjamesjacoby
 suggested or add a filter to leave themes/plugins remove the link when
 they need > eg
 6008.patch] or do nothing : they just could do a {{{strip_tags(
 get_the_title() )}}} to absolutely be sure to only get the title for their
 metas/breadcrumbs ....
