Is this a bug or, am I missing something? "Cached tag list is too long"

I wanted to edit my previous post and save it back. But, every time it throws this error. Can someone please help?

Hey ya, looks like the mention didn't work.

Think the issue is that your tags should have spaces between each comma, and it's being interpreted as a giant string. That error message is not all that helpful though, and we should update that.

Thanks for your prompt response, Andy. But unfortunately, it didn't work. I tried giving spaces between each tag, tried keeping just one tag, tried removing all tags; none of it worked. Can you please check on the issue once more? Here's the screenshot:

@AndyZhao "Cache tags" provide a declarative way to track which cache items depend on some data managed by your Content Management System.

A cache tag is a string. Cache tags are passed around in sets (order doesn't matter) of strings, so they are typehinted to string[]. They're sets because a single cache item can depend on (be invalidated by) many cache tags.
