What the fark is wrong with some people?
how can you so badly abuse TAG systems? i mean sure, try and come up with every related tag to your artwork is fine, but ust linking random words to a piece of artwork is just uncouth and not on.

If YOU see unreasonable TAGS, let them know, and shame them. Redbubble apparantly is powerless to stop this themselves at this point in time..
If tags arent used sensibly,they dont work.

here is an example of the tags added to a tshirt. only a handful could possibly be construed as related to the subject matter – the rest are just to grab any one trawling through redbubble.

the ONLY benefit i saw was that the sheer number of tags attached to the artwork made it almost impossible to load.

If your tagging your artwork inappropriatly, think of what it does to the tagging system – it renders it useless, thus no one will use it, and all your hardwork is for naught.
