Bad tags thread

I've noticed quite a few tags that are not spelled correctly or are just poorly done and would never appear on another thread.

Should we start listing them in a thread as we notice them or will there be a Tag complaints button where we can list the bad tags?

Here are a few that I've noticed so far:

These tags begin with a space, which prevents them from functioning on any other tags of the same name that are missing a space:

There are some tags that are enclosed in quote marks that prevents them from working with tags of the same name that are not enclosed in quotes:

Clicking on "john titor" will not return the same results as if you'd clicked on john titor


Some tags are just spelled wrong:

adolph hiter




There are some that I just don't see ever being used again:

laws that have no rights being

proud to be an american??? (the question marks prevent it from being useful as a tag)

who is god??? (more triple question marks)

aids hoax???? (Quadruple question mark)

apology??? non

are aliens real???

delta force = illuminati???

do you doubt god???


Here's the complete list of all tags:

The tag list could be useful if it could be trimmed down or if we could see how many threads are linked to a tag.

I've seen loads of bad tags, and some that don't even make sense. I love the idea, but I really don't think it's going to work because there will always be people who don't or wont double check, or who just like to be jackasses.

Great idea, just bad execution.

I would suggest either doing that, or using the Grip/Idea button at the top of the page.

Damn, I just made a bad tag myself.

I added an L to Gary Glitter's name by mistake.

I wish there was a way to correct this type of thing.

I think you are neglecting us dyslexics..
If there is a bad tag, just put in a good one too.
If you have used your tag option already, ask someone selse to do ti..

I think you have excellent intentions.
But we are thousands of monkeys, continously typing, hoping to get out
a good copy of Hamlet, before deadline..and all the Proofers have gone home.

NO need to be so .....A/R about this...It's all good

I think hte real tag sweeping will begin, once we get a grip on how they are being uses..
