Okay, I understand that on metaSO, (at least) one of the grey-bordered tags is required (bug, feature-request, discussion or support), and that the bold red-bordered tags (status-*) can only be added by a moderator. However, it used to be possible to remove a red-bordered tag from a post -- e.g. I did so on this post to essentially mark it as "reopened -- bug still occurring". Why was this ability removed? It is now impossible to re-report a bug, as duplicate posts are a no-no.
FWIW, the post I wish to mark as "nope, still just as much a problem as before" is this one regarding the reputation cap and downvotes (which I just encountered today).
