Tags: yes with no no

  • I don't do tags, but given the tags guidelines, shouldn't the proper tag be !yes instead of no? (I also like that I inadvertently replicated your "no no" in my subject, but with a different grammatical sense. Well, as inadvertently as Freud would allow, anyway.)

      Not really.

      Tags like "yes" and "no" aren't converying agreement or disagreement. "yes" denotes enthusiam and means something like "finally!" or "yipee!". "no", however, connotates "this shouldn't happen" or "absolutely not!", something that !yes just wouldn't convey.

      ! notation is for subjects, not emotional expression.
