    Ok kick my ass if I'm dreaming this but I just noticed you can't view video tags anymore on tube not even your own videos after you've posted them.

    Of course you can view the tags your creating in your uploads and can tag them but you can't view tags simply by visiting competitors or any other videos. Guess they picked up on all the spamming with tags?

    Surely I am screwed up because I can't find anyone else here posting about this.

    " This isn't a bug. We removed tags from the watch page, since we were finding that folks weren't clicking on them too often and they presented an opportunity for some for abuse (by copying tags in order to manipulate our discovery systems). When you upload a video or edit an uploaded video, tags can still be set, and they still aid the discovery of your videos just like they always have. The only difference is they don't show up on the video page."
