Whenever I post, I try to make a point to "tag" (i.e. @Ord) any users I'm referring to. I originally thought this would be a good way to make my posts give credit to the specific users I might be mentioning but I just started wondering if they were actually meant as a way to 'ping' a certain individual and if I've been needlessly spamming these users. I tend to be a perfectionist and figured this was 'good practice' but I don't want to be unintentionally pissing anyone off, either.
What's the general consensus regarding tagging users? An example post is this one where I've tagged 5 people in one post, some of which had nothing to do with the thread other than I was mentioning their works.
