Wait a sec, might this be a misunderstanding of how or why the tags got "disabled"? Or a misunderstanding of the difference in the author's intent and the rules of the tagging "vote" system?
moho25, you said you've seen the tags with 99 votes. Those are the themes or categories that the author chose to apply to their mod: The author voted for (selected "rep up" for) those categories. Similarly, the author voted against (selected "rep down" for) those categories that appear in red and that a user can't select.
The author isn't necessarily saying or even aware that the users can't vote on certain tags. The system is set up such that once the author votes, their vote counts more than a user's vote.
So it's not the author that's preventing you from selecting the tag. The tagging system itself (
or the Matrix...) is preventing it. It's not democratic, nor was it designed or intended to be.
So the author of the mod you pointed out probably isn't trying to say "Hah, this way those silly anti-anime folks will see my mod even if they exclude the anime category from their searches!" The author is more likely saying "I don't think my mod has anime themes."
The author just chose the tags that they thought applied or did not apply to their mod. The author didn't necessarily intend or even know that users would then be unable to vote on those tags.
