Watched Words for Tags not functioning properly

Man, was really loving this feature to auto-tag posts, but realizing something is up.

I have the following ‘watched’ tags set up …

* baltimore → Baltimore Ravens
* ravens → Baltimore Ravens

But somehow, the “Baltimore Ravens” tag is being automatically applied to the following post:

"OFFICIAL: Justin Fields to start at QB against Cleveland Browns | Chicago Bears Bulletin"

This isn’t the only post this is happening to. In fact, it’s happening to dozens, as though a ‘fuzzy’ search is being applied.

Is this a bug? Anything we can do to correct?

This sounds odd, one possibility here is that someone used grace period editing to remove baltimore from the post.

Can you reproduce the issue on a brand new topic?

Perhaps I misunderstood this feature—can replies to the parent topic generate additional tags? I found about 6 posts last night that ran into the same issue—teams being tagged that were never mentioned, but replies to the parent did mention those teams.

Replies do not. We say first post here, but it might be too easy to overlook:
