I added the "osx" tag to a question. Nothing else.

It shows that the "colors" tag was removed, and then re-added. What gives? Wouldn't it make sense to show it like this?

Yeah, I've noticed weird stuff like this too. Saying I've messed with stuff I didn't touch. – ɥʇǝS Feb 18 '13 at 19:56
Looks like the diff algo is a bit greedy. Not sure there is much we can do about it. – Oded Feb 18 '13 at 19:56
@Oded Well, if it's not worth the effort completely rewriting the diff algorithm, so be it :) – slhck Feb 18 '13 at 19:59
Ah, unintended side effect of this. – balpha Feb 18 '13 at 20:03
