Yes But,

If a Pub is tagged


The thing looks like a put (ie large pub like lables) hence
works relatively well as a land mark, it just happens to be closed and does
not sell Beer anymore. Its still useful if its a landmark. same as a disused
mine shaft is.

Once it gets knocked down, or reused, or as something else then the tags
need changing.
