Tag behavior...

When I first started playing with Calibre a week or two back, I was certain that when I already had Tags entered for a book, and then downloaded social content etc, that the new tags were ADDED to my own initially entered tags.

Since the last update (?) I've been finding that when I download social content, my original tags (usually something like UNREAD) are replaced by the new content.

I'm trying to figure out which of the following is correct:

a) did I flip a switch somewhere?
b) did this change during an update (intentionally or unintentionally)
c) it has always been this way, and I'm just misremembering.

Thanks for helping me figure it out...

If you "Fetch Meta-Data", it will replace that existing.

I found that if you are in the "Edit Meta-Data" window (for a single title) and
Fetch Meta-data and then click on the "Tag Editor" button (next to the tags.
The original tags, still show.. Just click OK, and only your original tags stay intact.
