Here are six reasons why using a numbered list in headlines needs to be eliminated
1. It’s far too overused
2. It makes me want to throw up now
3. Articles like this mostly overpromise and underdeliver
4. It’s a refuge for those who can’t create great headlines.
5. I’m tired of being lured into garbage.
That about covers it. And a perfectly written example of the genre if I do say so myself
