Has anyone else had difficulty adding TAGS to a post? I try to add a TAG, but its never added.

there have been many comments about tags. examples:
Bug - Edit removes tags
Unwanted "inherited" tags
RSS Feed of My Threads
the benefits of the tags has been discussed; if my recollections of previous posts is correct, tags might even be dropped.
compare stackoverflow.com for example, where it's basically one giant inbox and thus tags are a benefit to stackoverflow; OTOH with
forums.asp.net where posts are already in many sub-forums tags are needed not so much.
one idea if you're mainly looking for your own posts would be to put the tags in the body of you posts and your replies ... that's probably not necessary because, at least for me, Google is often sufficient for searching within forums.asp.net.
if you want to get back to specific posts ... look to the right of the time stamp:
LINK is a permalink to a specific post ... for example http://forums.asp.net/post/5210247.aspx links to your O.P. for *this* thread.
you can also click the Favorites link to add a post to your own list of favourite posts in your forums.asp.net profile.
