  •  Tags work just fine (none)
    If the community uses tags in a practical way that adheres to the entire purpose of tags then they work exactly as they're supposed to. When people don't adhere to it then it takes away from their usefulness.  What's even sillier is you taking Markos' words as "telling people off".   Somebody needs a xanax.

    Just for the sake of putting your comments in perspective....here is Markos "telling off" the community.

    Update: btw, a reminder that the tags are meant to be used as a categorization tool. They're not supposed to be used as a place for editorial comments. Take this diary as an example, about Laura Bush. The tags are: Stepford wife, Laura Bush, Automaton, Prince Charles, Camilla, Botox. Will anyone every search for "stepford wife"? "Automaton"? Even "botox" (on a political site)? No!

    So please, try to use existing tags. If you are creating a new tag, make sure it's a legitimate tag. And if you are a trusted user and see bullshit tags like the ones above, please edit accordingly. The success of the tagging feature depends on proper categorization.

    So what's sillier?   Markos' polite request that people use the tags in a proper way so that the function will be useful for categorization?  Or you thinking that he just told people off in an authoritarian manner.

    Good stuff Potato lol.
    Pretty harsh words of authoritarianism coming from Markos there.  

    George W. Bush, Resign NOW.
