I miss the tags so much. The "Quotes you have memorised" thread would already be full of purposefully mangled entries by now.
Seconding this. I'd love tags to come back!

Thirded. The Smiths one, the legendary one inspired by Cerys and her poor unfortunate relative, was one of the best things ever to happen.

Noob here. Were tags being used to continue grudges or something?  I know that's probably what I'd do if I had a grudge.

Yes and Barry had to code the tags to express their author as people couldn't help but abuse this.

This, and the Little and Large one were fantastic. I miss tags.

I used to enjoy tagging and funny tags as much as the next tit, but really I'm glad they've gone. (Remembering firmly that they were removed for technological practicality rather than editorial reasons.)

There was this element of a sad stampede whenever a thread was started - Colin Hunts trying to get in with a pun on the title, or sour cunts with an axe to sardonically grind about the poster or subject (and I count myself as both a Colin Hunt and a sour cunt on many occasions).

With them gone, it feels like not having a parallel meta sub-commentary running in every thread is truer to the spirit of having the thread itself. Either you participate/contribute via the thread of conversation, or you keep it to yourself.

The handful of people who still feel duty bound to do [tag]!!![/tag] during the course of a thread serves to highlight it as the routine unfunny irrelevance that it mostly was.

Yeah, I'm sort of glad we had tags, but also glad they're gone.

It was a sad, sad day when I realised we’d never again see threads like:

Bruce Forsyth Dead















...pleased to announce that the Yewtree folks haven’t cottoned onto him yet.

Which reminds me, I really must congratulate all those who said Forsyth wasn't a paedo - they got that one spot on.

The classic 'tag a link to the user's profile' meme.

x has let themselves go.

It's not so much the linking to a profile that I find funny, it's the subsequent thing of someone feigning being upset (using the same words) and then someone informing them it's a joke.

With the 3rd part you're not always sure if it's deliberate.

Anything related to Benest’s of Millbrook and Fineprice (Captain two-lit-AAAAAAR) never stops being amusing.

Oh yes. Only the finest videos to grace any thread.

That's the one, I really enjoyed it- even thought I've got no idea what the origin/meaning is behind it
