'All: THE COLON IS REQUIRED [tag]: not [tag]'

face picon face
There seems to be a rash of this lately so let me make a really BIG stink
about it.

THE COLON IS REQUIRED. "[pic]:" or "[PIC]:" or even "[pic:]" but NOT "[pic]"
It's not required by my decision. It's required by the list server software.
(no, we are not going to move to egroups. no, we are not going to ask MIT to
switch list server software. no, we are not going to do away with topic tags
because they HAVE improved life on this list drastically)

languages, "how do I...on a PIC".

[AVR]:> Items specific to the Atmel AVR microcontrollers
[EE]:> This label is for topics that, while not necessarily about PICs, are of
general interest to the EE community. How to hook something up to a
microcontroller or other computer (not related to the PIC on board
peripherals), how to measure something, how something works, news about
companies involved in EE, etc...
[OT]:> This label is for posts that are completely off the topic of PICs. The only
