    Checking the tags at the bottom of the threads that I read is getting to be like a little sport. I think they're automatically generated, instead of chosen by the posters. Is that correct? Some of them come out amusing. I'm sure I'll find some more examples later, but here are some tags I saw just now:

    If you see any funny lists or combinations, post them here!



    Oh, and here's one line from the Tag Cloud, chosen at random:


    Do I even want to know why ducks are in there?

    AFAIK, all tags are user-defined. Meaning that someone took the time to tag each of the threads with something relevant or just plain funny.

    Nope, that's not true, Heely. Words are automatically picked out as tags as well.

    Interesting... Don't think that's a default feature of vBulletin. Perhaps something Ryan or Rob added? *shrug*

    Edit: Just confirmed, it is not included with vBulletin by default, although there are some hacks that add this functionality.

    Echo what CL said, the only thread of mine that I actually tagged was my boob thread. Other then that, It's all been auto generated.

    That's funny, did you click on "Ducks?" one of the results is a CL classic. The name of the thread is as hilarious as the content.
