Hello,

This is an ESL question.

What is the correct word to use for the sentence below:
Why do some people tag my questions as/with/nothing "Racist" in A2K?

Options:
Why do some people tag my questions as "Racist" in A2K?
Why do some people tag my questions with "Racist" in A2K?
Why do some people tag my questions "Racist in A2K?

Or do you have any better suggestion?

Many thanks!

@cicibebe,
This has got to be the strangest metaquestion asked here at a2k that I've seen.

All three of them will suffice in getting the question you have asked/possibly want to ask across in a simple and correct manner. Are you really going to ask this question in another thread once you find the best wording? Or is this really just a simple ESL exercise?

Oh... you may want to replace "in a2k" with "at a2k"....

as/with/nothing "Racist"
Cis, if I understand the q, "as" or "with" are okay but I don't understand how "nothing" could fit

If you mean some participants actually tag, "Nothing racist in a2k," then I understand, but this seems unlikely as does option 3

Tsar I've made many meta, much more mystical

Quote:

But doesn't option 3 elicit just a little wonder and didn't the "nothing" jolt you just a little

Quote:

I had asked myself this too. I think it's the latter

Edited to remark thanks Cis

Yes I agree it has a slight edge
