Indeed, it’s odd that the home page does’t have any, but there are some on softpedia:

(Click on “Screenshots” down on the lower left of the page.)

Thank you for pointing this out.  I did some checking and at first thought that your impression was no longer true because it shows the parent path of the tag both in the item metadata and the filtered tag list.  However, if I tag with only the child, the item won’t show when only selecting the parent tag.  So you are absolutely right.

I’m not quite sure if I’d rather see it inherit parent tags as I’m trying to wrap my head around how to utilize nested tags AND cloning.  Like I think I’d be more likely to use the cloning as an alternate classification hierarchy and treat the tags (MB calls them labels, in this discussion I consider tags/labels the same thing) more like descriptive attributes where the nesting has more to do with keeping a growing list orderly than to reflect a hard hierarchy…. nah I’m just BS-ing myself.  I’d prefer they inherit and even transclude.  Would be nice if this was an option.

I’ll bet it’s really annoying for Pierre to read these threads as they all tend to bend towards ‘IQ can do all of these things’.

Ha, ha, ha! Very true (that IQ can do all these thing AND that Pierre will say this).

LOL, far from true, as IQ is Windows only (unless on a VM) , and doesn’t really have nested tags yet

I’m aware of Paul Miller’s recent work-around to get IQ to act ‘as-if’ it does nested tags.  That really says a lot IQ’s core concept of ‘everything is an item and any item can be a parent/child of any other item’ and how ultimately flexible that is in practice.
