A Tag Cloud of Prolurker

Kind of interesting to see what tags are pulled from the main page of the site.  Yes I know, I'm still ambiguous on the whole tagging concept.  And I don't buy that tagging gets us away from categorization...looks to me like it creates more categorization of just less usable categories at this point.  Oh well, so here is the Tag Cloud for prolurker for your viewing enjoyment, click on the picture to access a larger - more easy to read - version with the same tag count limit, or click here to see the real time version of Professional-Lurker's TagCloud with a 100 tag limit.

I find two of the entries really interesting.  They are "ing" and "LOL".  I am not at all sure where "ing" comes from since it's not a term I use independently.  Kind of odd to see that as one of my most used terms.  And I am glad to see that "LOL" is among the top terms used...what can I say I love to laugh.  *Breaking into the chorus of "I Love to Laugh"*

We love to laugh
Loud and long and clear
We love to laugh
So ev'rybody can hear
The more you laugh
The more you fill with glee
And the more the glee
The more we're a merrier we!

I'll keep an eye on the TagCloud for the site and I am actually tagging while I play with RocketPost.
