@rlapid2112: A perfect example of the inconsistency of tagging. It depends on who is moderating and whether they like you or not.

Good to see you're addicted to a harmless and relatively inexpensive product ;-)

At least it didn't get the #sexy kiss of death. :)

@kmeltzer: That certainly makes more sense than some of the other excuses...er...I mean reasons I've heard before.

My guess is tags are really for SEO purposes. Not for you.

There is really a lot that goes into making a website search engine spider friendly, which can sometimes trump user-friendly. I think that tags, are one of those things. I'm sure they (sometimes, maybe) try to have it both be SEO friendly and user-friendly, but SEO will always win if there is an arm-wresting match.

@ohcheri: I have nothing useful to add, other than the redundancy of tagging a question about tags with #tag. :)

And I love creative tags. Even if they have a limited lifespan.

@caffeine_dude: I know, I know...they make the rules/change the rules/bend the rules, etc. Just feeling a tad cranky today I guess :-)

@ohcheri: I found this question by searching the Meta tag. : /

I gave up on tags long ago, I used to think 'just once I would like my tags not to be changed', I would go as far as search past deals and use duplicate tags for similar items. Now that I gave up and have fun with it I think 'hey, I provide someone a job of title of "The Tag Editor" ', and now I under @shrdlu: law to post my tags in the first comment for posterity.

Obviously no disrespect for @jumbowoot: intended. Wow How did I miss all the tag discussions good list @jumbowoot!

I've read all the discussions but many times the tags I see don't seem to be any help to shoppers.

Just saying...
