Tags! Tags?

I've been noticing recently that there are weird tags on posts. When you create a thread and enter some tags that seems to be OK. However, there are a lot of threads that also have unrelated two letter tags in addition to the ones that are logical.

Click on TODAY'S POSTS and scroll down the list. You'll see what I mean.

Yeah. I see that. Like the "ca" tagged onto the granola thread. And the "wi" added to the legit tags on the potato salad thread. An oddity. A harmless oddity, I guess.

Yes, harmless. Points to a software issue.

Kind of odd that all the two letter tags are also state abbreviations.
Why ca, ny, wi, mo? Why not zb, rt, by, aa?
Coincidence? I think not.

Aren't you clever to notice that!

Personally, I like the tags listed as "other" and "food". Very helpful.

I don't understand Pac's tags. I wonder what categories they might be used. Is Ca for California or Canada or Canberra?
