What's with the recent trend of tagging articles with palin or sarahpalin that have nothing to do with Sarah Palin?

If your article has nothing to do with Palin, please don't tag it as such. It's bad enough that journalists use her name to get hits to their articles or as a cheap source of writing material. We don't need that attitude here too.

Just because people want to increase traffic to their posts, doesn't mean they should tag their posted articles with palin or sarahpalin. This just clutters the keyword/tagging system.

As stoopid as this thread is, it does refer to Palin.

I hadn’t noticed, but you can complain to the moderators to have the keywords removed and the modertors can also see the screen name of the member(s) who are adding the keywords.

Like now, notice the keywords added to your vanity.

Did you post keywords?

You’re only permitted to post four keyowrds at the time your post an article.

Same reason that people post their favorite blogs to Breaking News. They’re idiots.

If you extend your screen name to AnamnesisisenmanA, you will be a Sarah Palindrome.

I checked the poster’s history. He appears to be a Palinista in good standing.

WHY IS THERE NO "Click to Remove Keyword" FUNCTION ON FREEP????

Seriously, the keyword spamming is the one reason I've stopped coming here. My donations have been going to other sites.

You stopped visiting/donating to Free Republic because of keyword spamming? To each his own, but that seems pretty lame.

You’ve left the site because of keyword spamming, but set yourself an alarm so that if someone posted about keywords, you’d be informed so you could come back and post to the thread?

(Hey, I had another snarky thing to say, but it wasn’t family-friendly) :-)

Well, there was the thread immediately preceeding this one: 10-446 KERCHNER V. OBAMA CERTIORARI DENIED, the only mention of Palin was a single comment that suggested Palin would be smoking obama in a debate before the trial happened.

Then there was this inexplicable tagging: Actor Leslie Nielsen dies of complications from pneumonia

And this one: GEORGE WASHINGTON'S FIRST THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION

It doesn't look like there are tons of them, but there certainly are a few. Question is, are the more threads about Sarah which aren't being tagged than there are non-Palin threads being tagged?

We might as well add a Mormon tag, since every third article or so these days is something about loving mormons or hating mormons or mormons loving...
