JAWW (beta)

The ward is a factory for the Combine

so, "your Category is your Tag" — not anymore… very soon

have you noticed recent changes in the post-meta section and the bottom-bar “Tags” list links on the .com news blog?

instead of pointing to the Collective Links Farm Kolkhoz (aka Global Tags, wordpress.com/tag/bla-bla), now they link to their own internal local categories (wordpress.com/categories/bla-bla).

ETA: not anymore back again

also, yesterday in the forums a secretive remark that “something is changing very soon…” has been made by one of staffers.

is that staff have decided to give up with passing away PR8 links to the Tag Communitysm, they were building so obstinately, or just have heard their primary customer who told them to “Give Us Real Tags on WordPress.com!”?

or they merely have finally got pissed off by the fact they can’t find their own related posts on their own blog by clicking on ’random tags’ anywhere on a post page?

and, yes I know, all that’s simply caused by real tags which are being introduced in WP 2.3, so I’m not holding my breath about abusive behavior of my local Category/Tag/whatever they’ll be called links in the post-meta section will change anytime soon, despite I’m supposed to be assured it’s on the list.
