Forcing [Blogger] users against their will

It seems that now Blogger forces users to place a title on HTML gadgets and this title shows up on the blog.
I'm using a Top of Blogs button with counter and I wonder if it affects, since my blog got over 2500 visits in less than 24h and it didn't move a bit in the directory.
Does anyone know how I can avoid having to place a title on the Blogger gadgets ?
Maybe Google should ask its users before making changes.

Best regards,


P.S. you can check the blog , with a counter on top left and you'll see its evolution and how the Top of Blogs counter on down right doesn't move.

It's a known issue:

"A recent update to the HTML/Javascript Gadget made the Title field required, and based upon user feedback, we will soon be removing that requirement."
