Why is it allowed to add same tag to interesting and ignored tags' lists?

It is, but you shouldn't put the entire question in the title and have absolutely nothing in the body. –  random Sep 17 '09 at 13:23

Assuming that in most cases, it is a mistake, it is small and easily correctable.

On the other hand, if someone has a variety of tags that they want to temporarily ignore, it would make sense that they can add them to the ignore list without being forced to remove them from the interesting tags.

I wouldn't call this a bug. I'd call it a feature.

Agreed, software that tries too hard to enforce ideas of what make sense to one person end up failing someone else in frustrating ways. Wait until something is demonstrated to cause problems before deciding it needs to be corrected. This is the attitude the dev team has taken in the past, for the most part. –  ベレアー アダム Sep 17 '09 at 13:37
