Ahh, that's a different issue. Anyone can post news items, and nearly everyone puts really stupid tags in news items which we then have to clear out manually from the database. So the tagging bit is restricted to people who post stuff regularly until there's a way to sort this out. I've thought of a way to clear empty bad tags out automatically, but it'll take a while to get working. It's a bit lame, but it's better than hunting through a list 2,000+ tags trying to find bad ones.
