To avoid confusion, I think they should stop pass tags:true to select2 there if the current user does not have right to create tags.

@TracyMyles Could you also take my suggestion for developers of QnA site for consideration. After implemented this change, I think there will be much less "Cannot add tag" complain.

Currently all users will have the tag control with "tags: true" option, so it'll appear to normal users that they can add tag but they cannot. That's the major part of this kind of confusion.

They may also choose to take this option away regardless of the role, because you need to add description to tags when creating one, IMO there shouldn't be need for shortcut to create tags. (Maybe this was added in early prototype when everyone can add tags to questions)
