One of the different settings you can adjust for your comments is the comment title, or the subject. By default, members are allowed to enter a title, or subject for their comment. If no subject title is entered, then one will be created by using the first 29 characters of the body of the comment. If you wish to make this the default setting, simply follow the instructions below.

The option no longer appears at that location.  Someone must have removed the option in one of the D8 updates.

Is there another way to remove comment titles?

If the option above is unavailable you can always delete the line of code from the theme file.
