Delicious tags

HA!  You learn something every day!

After posting in the thread below me, I just now found that delicious *does* what I just said it didn't - intersections.

As it turns out, each of the "related tags" are actually two links.  The tag itself takes you to the broad category, the "+" will interset that tag with your current one.  Who would have guessed?  I, like probably most users, assumed that the + was a bullet point or something, not a whole damn different function!  It would seem to me they ought to have the entire " + <tag>" do an intersection; which I'd venture is what most people would want to do.

I wonder how many other newbie del.icio.us users never discovered this essential feature and consequentally dismissed the product as useless hype?

Hey Cory!

I have just pointed that to you on that thread, i didnt see you have already discovered it for yourself...!

I dont know if many people don't notice that feature, i don't work on the IT/web business, so i pretty much don't know anyone that uses it, besides me.

Del.icio.us is great because of the tag intersections. Without it, tags would be indeed a much worse version of folders.
