Offensive and racist tags
Overall I have to say, I think all of you guys in the tech department have done a pretty fine job with the TF overhaul. Several very nice features have been added and that is a good thing.
But enough about that. One feature which has been added which would have seemed quite a fun and innocuous thing on the surface seems to have been hijacked by some pretty malicious people. That is the use of tags. Over the last few days, these tags have grown increasingly nasty, tasteless and even racist, sexist and homophobic. Obviously this was not the intended use of them but it does seem the fact that from what I can see they seem to be added anonymously does look like it is causing problems. Hopefully, it should be clear to the administrators and moderators who is behind these tags and not only can they be removed but the people, or person who is making them can be dealt with in a suitable manner. Whether that involves simply giving warnings or banning people I will leave up to the wisdom of the people who work on this site. But it clear something needs to be done and a lot of the tags I am seeing right now are absolutely not appropriate for this forum to put it mildly.
