Martin has kindly suggested the use of [poo-storm] referenced here. I believe the first recipient of this honorary tag should be the hackintosh thread. All in favor?

  • hahahahaha well, I like to see the suggestion taken into consideration, it could be a nice indicator when a thread is going to smell bad :) Nov 5 '10 at 14:32
  • For the meta site? I think so. :-)

  • so how would we go about putting an icon inside the tag some tags on stackoverflow? Sep 19 '11 at 14:11
  • It's not an icon; it's just a character, right? Not all browsers will display it, but its just text. So instead of [poo-storm], use [poo-storm💩]

  • 'Doh. It's text, but SO's engine won't take random unicode in tag text. So no 💩 tag. :-(

Alas, it appears tag text cannot contain arbitrary unicode characters. So we are stuck with [poo-storm] as the tag and not[💩poo-storm] or some other cool permutation.

Perhaps John Greenleaf Whitter said it best with regard to this situation: "For all sad words of tongue and pen, The saddest are these, 'It might have been.'"
