If you have a word which is generally overtagged, but this word isn't tagged with overtagged, then it is undertagged, but once one tags it with undertagged, then it is mistagged.But what if the word overtagged itself is missing the tag metatag, telling us it describes tags, and not words? Then overtagged is undertagged, leading us to tag it undertagged, but then if someone adds metatag, it is itself overtagged with undertagged and thus mistagged.

I wonder, could you be overtagging in a general sense while undertagging specifically? Because then confusion, as well as possible hilarity, would ensue.

Well, they may not be OVERtagged at that point, but they certainly aren't undertagged—not if most of the words on this site aren't tagged at all.Anyway, maybe, as on overtagged, what ensues is hilarity.
Then you'd have to tag them "overtagged," and chaos would ensue.
Ah, but if there are many, many undertagged words, and one tags them with "undertagged," then they're not undertagged anymore, are they?

It's tricky in borderline cases, though.
A tag which should be used in a lot more places than it is.
