On Blogspot's link creation algorithm

Blogspot uses an automated algorithm based on the title to come up with direct links to posts.  The algorithm seems to remove common words like "the" and "a" so that the link to my last post (title:  Blog like a guy: use "the" and avoid "and") is:


The algorithm didn't recognize that in this case, the word "the" is important.  Since this is sort of my line of work, I started thinking about how to improve Blogspot's algorithm -- a rule like "if a word is enclosed in quotes, it should always be included" should do it.  Am I overthinking this -- does any one really care about what the link is?
