@bobble I guess this means you can resume your yeoman (yeoperson?) work of retagging mistagged questions / adding missing tags
:) I'll restart tomorrow
3:21 AM
I have two more tagging meta posts saved up on Puzzling, and I'll take a stab at writing an FAQ-answer summarizing out tagging system in a bit. Though in both cases I'm waiting for a currently-active meta post to die down.

Why is the word DEmagogue used in a negative sense?
Does the same rule apply to Mystagogue?

@RajorshiKoyal As has been said several times, this is not the forum for such questions. To avoid being blocked, please stop asking them here. Thanks.

What a contrast between the two answers to this question.
@verbose now has 74 questions, matching our #3 author tag. Nice work.

The only non-generic tags in the top ten are at #6 and at #8, followed by at #13 and at #17.

verboseWe currently have a tag narrator that as of today has 21 questions associated with it.

There are two ongoing topic challenges this month: Mem and Zin (traditional Kurdish story) and Gargantua and Pantagruel (16th-century French novels).

@Randal'Thor, the post notice you put here doesn't make a whole lot of sense since you can't "answer" an answer. Did you mean to put the "answers should have citation" notice?

Q: Recommendation of books on reversal of fortune of communities in post-colonial societies?

LucasI am an economist and I am finishing writing a study in which I argue that the economic conditions of ex-slaves in Brazil were not very different from European immigrants in the first years after abolition. This would have occurred because the success of the coffee economy would have kept demand ...
