Why is Tagging so slow #SLOW

    Can you please fix this site with regards to adding tags?
    When I type #, I have to wait 10s-20s for the full list to load and then I have to wait still when I start typing before I can try selecting the tag.
    Why can't we just type out #TAG and then hit enter and the site then adds those tags automatically?
    If we don't select the name from the list, it converts it to just plain text as you can see with these tags in this post.
    This delay is really bad and makes me not want to bother tagging any of my posts.

    We brought this up to HL today. The biggest issue is the 40k+ tags that were migrated. There's no easy fix for that as combing through them to eliminate garbage tags is hampered by resources and knowledge. They are going to look at adding the tag 'button' back for users when they create a post. That might functionally save time but would still be using the same search.
