Not Actually Extremely Problematic: The "popular tags" page on the green is a tag cloud, but none of the tags appear much larger than the others.

is what I'm talking about. Maybe it's just me, but instead of being able to tell at a glance that some tags are just more common than others, the difference between the biggest (ie, most common) tags and the smallest ones just isn't visually obvious. It actually looks more like a list with really sloppy formatting than an actual tag cloud. The size range is from 20 to 30 points; 50% is a big jump in theory, but when it's all run together, It doesn't really impart "This is more common than that" in an obvious intuitive kind of way. Contrast with the tag cloud for the blue, where the range is from 15 to 30, which helps make the size differential a little clearer.
(And, okay, yes, on the How Important is this Really scale, this falls just north of "Obscure bug affecting Internet Explorer for Macintosh," but it's bothering me
