This hed's forbidden. Here's why

Yes, it sounds all linky and clicky, but please -- three "here's why" and a "here's what"? Any objections to placing this one on the Forbidden Heds list?

And can it be a reminder of the old days? "Dies after being shot," not "killed after being shot," please.

A study at the Engaging News Project presented at ACES tested traditional heds against "Why xxx" heds and found no difference in people's reaction. (Question formulations such as "Why does xxx" are worse than the others, kill them with fire.)
