Gladly. If you sense a little frustration on my part, it is purely
because most of us have been round this track more than a
few times... Any (and I stress *any*) tagging system is very
nicely vulnerable to being hijacked by downstream users. So
from a perspective of not helping censorship by own actions,
it is a strict no-go. I am being succint and to the point here.
The fact that some people have been offered this quite clear
explanation, and still keep acting as if they had not even
heard it... without hurling any insults, their behaviour does
make some of us frustrated.
