    I noticed this too. Kind of an odd feel for this forum.

    Re: Is it troll season?

    I am passionate about a select few interests, and do have emotional reactions sometimes, just not through the keyboard. I've learned to not reply, as it never enlightens the other person and usually un-enlightens the one who responds. Some have taken me to task about my retail background and my fondness for DIY as being disingenuous and generic, but I had the DIY mindset and education because of Pat Snyder and Dave Graebener, which was way before I started working where I did. Even my sig line has been admonished. Yet never said to me directly. I can't change how others see things, nor how they think. I have my own personal reasons, not because of conjecture or anecdotal evidence, but through direct experience and researching something before I shoot my mouth off (or type away). I find facts and proveable info, even in this subjective world of SQ. I'm not of the process that if I say/type it enough, it somehow becomes true or has relevance. Passion means strong feelings, in agreement or not. I figure if I lived in that guys shoes, I might feel the same way. I ignore tags, so I'm with the "don't look" approach. Things would be much different if we were all in a room, looking at each other and gauging responses and reactions through body language, eye contact and voice inflections.

    The internet is full of sad pathetic people. Best to just ignore and move on.

    Yeah, I don't use them at all, for searching or actually tagging, so I wouldn't miss that function.

    I'll say I'm new to this forum but not to forums in general, I have noticed this tagging nonsense on this forum in particular and there has to be a better word for it than trolling, in fact I think this is offensive to those who troll.

    This passive aggressive tagging is even worse than trolling as at least when someone trolls, you know who they are! ;)

    I would consider anonymous taggers not wanting to show who they are, yet leave nasty remarks, cowards, not worthy of consideration.
    Hear, hear!

    I come here to read posts and replies and or reply to posts. Tags are of no consequence because I don't read them, they are virtually worthless., their content is never noticed.

    This thread indicates that admins can see who created tags:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...ags-in-threads

    I find that pretty interesting.

    I know the PE guys say they can't. What if they could?
