I told you both how "off" has to be interpreted and the reason why it has to be interpreted that way in a previous mail already.
Unfortunately I cannot tell you what is right, only what I perceive to be right.

You do realize that you took this from a page which states:

You are right, this one does not cause tagging mistakes, I merely listed it for completeness.

"They like it" and "they tag it the wrong way" don't exclude each other.

Again, (2) and (3) don't exclude each other.
