It first looked like two m's but then I realized it was rn. It seems the return carriage is a bit broken...

those are tabs, and they should no longer even be doable.

There was recently some discussion in the forum over whether this is still reproducible.

In my testing, a return directly before the first tag was successfully stripped, as was a return directly after the last tag, tag space return tag, and a return between two spaces, but separating two tags by one or more carriage returns and no other whitespace characters still resulted in fused tags.

You can see fused tags produced today, e.g. yellow_eyesrnrnfoobar yakumo_ranrnrn2girls in the tag history at

Is this still being worked on? I can find a bunch of tags with
carriage return:*%0D*
line feed:*%0A*
The later two will contain mostly the same images.

I don't know how you're parsing the tags, but can you not just use a regex engine to split at "\s+" ? Maybe also include all the new unicode whitespace?
Unfortunately the post search strips the whitespace from the query so I can't search for images with tab/CR/LF and fix them.
