Some People Don’t Understand the Tag System

Here at wp.com instead of a standard category system they use a system called tagging. This allows a visitor to look at a particular tag and see all the posts in that category.

It generally works really well. Right up until you get the person that either doesn’t understand tags or likes to abuse the system in a vain attempt to get more readers.

Let’s take an example. dianachance.wordpress.com recently moaned about the RSS feeds not working properly. Fair enough, if it doesn’t work, get it fixed. No problem with that. But. What the fuck has RSS problems got to do with:

Bad Behavior, News and politics, Life in general, Photo Sharing, Life, Amazing Facts, Whatever, Blogosphere, Science, Marketing, Business, Blog, photos, Humanity, What The Fuck, Entertainment, Politics, Photography, Blogs and Blogging, Girl Stuff, Happy, sex, advertising, the life, Own Story, Genre: Romance, Photo Blogging, quotes, Creativity, Market Analysis, Top 10 Blogs, Top Blogs, daily life, Inside my mind, Photo, General Blogging, Photographs, Cool photos, philosophy & politics, Impeach Bush, Blogroll, Everything, The Story Behind a Photo, Market Research & Intelligence, Marketing Communications, The Marketeer, What if…, Beauty, Emarketing, Mind & Spirit, What I’m thinking now, Jokes, Stories From The Heart, What’s New, Feeds, President Bush, anger, Emotional, Law & Politics, Feed, Sexual/Sensual, Marketing & Promotion, kids, News Feeds, Intuition, Matters of the Heart, Love, Romance/ Love, Article Marketing, Motherhood, Blonde, Management, Democrats, Internet Marketing, Quotes for Thought, psycho girl, Your Body & Your Life, Marriage, stupidity, Life and loving it., Success!, Quotable Quotes, My Story, Romantic, a-woman-thing, Sexcom, Amazing Stuff, Spiritual Quotes, Sexblogging, sexy, etcetera, Depression, Sadness, Crazy, About Me, Myself and I, Advertisement, joke, George W.

All of these are tags are attached to the bottom of every single damned post. Why? What purpose does it serve? You reckon you’ve already got a readership as they’re using your RSS feed. are you that vain that you need to enter the race for popularity using every tag above?

Oh, and two responses to your blonde post:

1. Being blonde does not necessarily make you stupid. You are not necessarily stupid just because you are blonde. You are stupid. But not because you’re blonde.
2. If that’s you in the photo I want proof. I want to see a photo of you with a handwritten sign saying “I Love Jimbo at WordPress.com. He is a demi god”. Yeah, Demi God. I can’t take the title of god, Timethief has that honour!
