Comment (by Clorith):


 I don't agree that the tags are beneficial to end users, as they are more
 likely to use a search, writing what they want to do more so than click
 through a bunch of keywords hoping to find what they don't know they need.

 You'll notice that using the tags links in the sidebar of a plugin now,
 takes you to the search results page using the tag as the search term, and
 not a dedicated tag list as well for this reason.

 I'll also leave a note of this
 [https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/40186 core ticket proposing the
 removal of the tag list] in core as well.
