I like the idea of shortening that tags list.  Maybe we can add a  
quick line of instruction over the right hand sidebar with the subset  
names (+) for those who don't get it.  I try to tag things into  
classes and subclasses like animal,mammal,feline,tiger but a lot of  
people are very bad about their tagging.  So it is an area we  
librarians can help in.

I wondered about an automated way to clean up tags.  I've done some of  
it where a tag has been generated by a typo, but it would be good to  
merge larger groups - how does it work Jon?

Seems an obvious place to start is merging single and plural version  
of a tag together like bird and birds.  I think the singular is better  
and all encompassing.  Do we agree?
