I have dozens of tags. This order (just a few) makes no sense whatsoever:
bowling, power, fuel, cable, water, hair, car_insurance
The sort order is unfathomable. It's not alphabetical, it's not based on volume. Arrgh!
You really need to consider your user base and HOW they are using the application.
Hiding behind, 'Well, that's not how we built it" is only going to hasten your collapse.
Please, please allow us to order our tags in the drop-down in a meaningful way.
You could even just start with alphabetical...
