I don't know whether I am the only one experiencing this feeling or not.
I feel that the "Interesting Tags" column is a bit cluttered and kind of overlapping with each other if we have many tags marked as interesting. Sometimes I ended up clicking x mark near tags instead of actually clicking the tags. I know I use a highly sensitive mouse. But still.. Should not there be a bit space between them so that it actually looks better?

If you see this image you could understand that tags or so close (particularly spaces between two lines) that even a slightest movement in high-sensitive mouse can delete another tag instead of selecting one.

Using IE6/WinXP/TimesNewRoman/96dpi Thanks to John and Random, it seems to be a problem with IE6 alone. Do we have some setting to make it look good in IE6?

Just more spacing between all. Wouldn't it provide a much pleasing look? and easier to click-navigate? – vpram86 Oct 6 '09 at 9:15
I was referring the spaces betwenen different (tag,x) combinations... both in horizontal and vertical manner. Can i add a image to my question? Could you please tell me how to do that? i will show exactly what i was referring to.. – vpram86 Oct 6 '09 at 9:20
@Aviator, edit your post and replace: with the correct URL of your image. – Ladybug Killer Oct 6 '09 at 9:26

Ouch! What browser? What OS? What font? DPI settings? – Ladybug Killer Oct 6 '09 at 9:28
@John: IE6,WinXP,TimesNewRoman,Normal(96) Is this combination a problem :'( ?? – vpram86 Oct 6 '09 at 9:35
You use IE? Aaaahhh! – Ladybug Killer Oct 6 '09 at 9:37
You use IE 6? Aaaahhhhhhh! – Ladybug Killer Oct 6 '09 at 9:37
Honestly, do you rely on IE 6? Won't upgrade to IE7? – Ladybug Killer Oct 6 '09 at 9:38
@John: lol!! :).. I know.. Only from this machine.. I have firefox in my laptop...:)... – vpram86 Oct 6 '09 at 9:40
Its my office machine.. :).. they dont upgrade it easily... its also a customized IE6...;) – vpram86 Oct 6 '09 at 9:40
@John: but seriously is it dependent on browsers? should not it behave the same across all? – vpram86 Oct 6 '09 at 9:41
Aviator, I cannot reproduce it with IE7. It gets ugly, if you zoom in/out ([CTRL]+[-], [CTRL]+[+]), but that's it. – Ladybug Killer Oct 6 '09 at 9:45
Confirmed the swamp of tag soup in IE6. That's just obscene. – random Oct 6 '09 at 10:01
Ho, ho, ho! I found a VMWare with IE6 on it. Don't ask where! Yes, it is definitely an IE6 problem. Hit refresh and watch the interesting tags. First they are aligned correctly, then they are crunched together (you can watch it with a slow machine) when the "x"-buttons appear. Does not happen on IE7. – Ladybug Killer Oct 6 '09 at 10:04
