Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Encountered on the right hand pane whilst looking at unanswered questions. Also encountered on the user page under prefs.

I guess it could be intentional, but I thought I ought to mention it in case it was an oversight.

That's indeed intentional; the reasons are three-fold:

  1. When you add an interesting/ignored tag, you usually know which tag it's going to be.
  2. You can also favorite/ignore from the on-hover tag menu, which also contains the tag wiki excerpt.
  3. The new tag suggestion list takes up a lot more space, so making it work with the tiny ignored/favorites boxes is harder.

Granted, 3. isn't an unsolvable problem, but with 1. and 2., I don't think it's necessary.
