so i sort of understand the fascination with tags (although i haven’t provided any way for browsing my entries here by tag), but it seems a shame that the common implementations eschew spaces within tags.

one thing that is fun about tags is that they can provide a bit of meta-commentary about an entry, sort of like a title sometimes does.

Some services (like Flickr) allow you to enclose whitespace-containing tags within quotes ("No space for you"), which I believe most other implementations might adopt one fine day. Seems like a good tradeoff.
