Possible Duplicates:
“Delete” icon near my favorite tags
option to lock “interesting tags” section so 'x' isn't hit accidentally on a tag

I very often want to look at my favourite tags. I very rarely want to delete a favourite tag. I certainly don't want to accidentally delete a favourite tag while trying to click on the tag itself.

Can we move favourite/ignored tag management away from the tags themselves? I think there is an opposite of Fitt's law problem here.

ah-hah, its US/UK spelling thing, i searched with the UK spelling of favourite and got no useful hits, with the US spelling there are indeed easy to find dups – jk. Jul 7 '11 at 9:40

It happens to me all the time, and is quite irritating. I think a confirmation dialog would be great, especially since re-adding a favorite tag, puts it at the end of the line, changing the order you had them in.

I disagree, I think the delete should be on your profile page or similar - if you keep banging into something its better to move it then cover it with cushioning – jk. Jul 7 '11 at 16:41
@jk., that's a fine idea also. – Lance Roberts Jul 7 '11 at 16:42
