Users often select very poor tags and we need the ability to control this in Ask Fedora.

*  karma points should be required to create new tags
*  admin ability to mass remove tags
*  admin setting to blacklist tags
edit retag flag offensive close merge delete



I've just spent a lot of time during the past few days, retagging many questions in Ask Fedora, and I obviously agree. One thing I'd add, is that it should simply be possible to make tags optional. Right now, I'm seeing lots of useless tags (e.g "fedora"... Really? On a Fedora support site?), and I have a feeling that because tags are mandatory, people or just putting in whatever.

Scratch that, tags can already be made optional apparently, with a setting.
