Comment (by joostdevalk):

 From a marketing perspective, these titles are detrimental. We're working
 on adding an Enterprise page to wordpress.org because as you all know,
 WordPress IS used in the enterprise. So there are at minimum two
 attributes that, no matter how we fix this, need to change:

 - "Come here for the latest scoop." is not something I understand. My
 English is good, but not native, just like for a large group of our users.
 So we should replace it with something less colloquial. "The latest news
 about WordPress" seems better to me.
 - "Find a home for your blog." doesn't do justice to all the types of
 sites that are built with WordPress and should thus be more like "Find
 hosting for your WordPress site".

 Also, I'd totally be 100% OK with removing the title attributes altogether
 and not spending all this time of very valuable contributors :)
