The Turkey Tag


Sunday 19 October, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Like most of us, I spend a little time every day to peruse the offerings of my fellow bloggers. Now, rather than attempt to read all two million new posts that appear each day, I have a select few that I ‘follow’, and then have a look under certain categories, or tags, that are of interest to me. Unsurprisingly, one such tag happens to be my country, Turkey.

Now, unfortunately, at this time of year, the tag gets hijacked by our North American cousins who insist on posting pictures of a rather large bird of the genus Meleagris, which is native to the Americas as I understand.

Here is one of the said birdies, of the Meleagris Gallopavo variety…



Anyway, whilst I am dying to wake up each day to view lots and lots of pictures of said birdies that are destined to adorn North American tables in the near future, by way of a large oven at a slow roast temperature, I would tentatively ask most politely if the WordPress ‘tag’ could remain reserved for usage by our country, Turkey, and not for the denotation of posts regarding the feathered version.

I did try to follow what was happening regarding my country by looking under ‘Thanksgiving’, but alas, no… I could find no mention of the regional war unfolding on our doorstep, the geopolitical crises we seem to be involved with on varying domestic and international fronts, and other such triviality. 

Just sayin’….

Grumbly Spike 🙂

    That is very annoying. I guess there must be other words the same. It is similar in search engines but you can usually go into the advanced settings and exclude things. I was wondering whether the tags should be case sensitive but then people would have to know not to use a capital T for the birds. No hope I’m afraid. How close do you live to the border?

    What if the post is about Turkey turkeys, is it OK to tag it as Turkey 🙂

    I wouldn’t welcome that crossed wire much either. (Generally not a fan of those types of events and not too happy for the birds fate. )
