They (noobs) are too dumb alternatively smart to understand what these tags mean.
Example:
Feedback Misc Review: GBATEMP live chat or IRC chat... (Is that Already Available)?
That's something I like/probably would use
Misc Review: Does Skype come on a disc for PSP?
I see that there are some programs for PSP on a disc

(I don't know much about PSP)

There was also a bunch of tutorials representing a cargo cult at best case, I'm too lazy to search for it. And so on.

Thread tags are useless. And I believe EOF has made sure to show how useless tags are.

It was supposed to be used as a sorting filter or so I recall... :unsure:

Anyway, don't think it's going to get changed.

Then just remove them (tags) completely.
On threads that are really worth it, the necessary tags can be put by the moderator of the section. There are actually very few of them (such worthy threads).
In its current state, it's just a colorful trashyard.

Could always just block them yourself, point your ad blocker at them or userscript/browser custom css with:
CSS:
.labelLink, .label-append {
   display: none;
}

Sure they're misused at times, but I think overall they work well enough

ublock is always good for sure (I probably already have 50 or so lines of rules dedicated only to gbatemp in it), but this is not a solution to the problem.
It will be just another blind eye to the problem.

It's only a problem for you though so why not fix it on your end? The tags are a legitimately useful post identification feature

Taking away from noobs wouldn't really solve anything, all it does is make all posts be incorrectly tagged instead of some, and as mentioned by staff can report mistagged threads

Oh no. I'm not going to interfere with the moderators to do their job.
Until today - yes, I sometimes reported something about something like that.
But that desire somehow disappeared.
Let everything continue to sink in shit. Why do anything when you can successfully do nothing.
Finding something by searching is already a big problem (there are no options for sorting the results, the results are not ordered by time, etc.), tags do not help with simple 'subsections' sorting, ignoring sections or individual topics is not provided, ignoring persons is some kind of joke, constant spammers. But there are many, many different ads everywhere.
Well, nevermind. After all, it's not my problems. Good luck.
