Unless I missed something, the only time that you mentioned private-use
tagging was when you enumerated the options that are available.

That does not count as "trying to chase away the requester", quite to
the contrary. I think that was rather helpful.

So I was not looking at you, and in fact, I was not looking at anyone in
particular. It just so happens that it comes up all the time.
