Why are to many tags bad for an article
I would think more = better, got a message to many tags on my last article?
It is considered as a little bit spammy. Trying to obtain visitors using tags which are not entirely relevant, or are a little tenuous to the subject matter. Hubpages will warn you before publishing if you are using too many, and your hub may risk getting banned if you don't remove a few.
People want their articles read, so the put a lot of tags. It's a wrong way to be popular, because in fact the article is not relevant to your tags. So less and better tags are more useful than a lot of unliked tags.
The basic thing like most people have been saying. A lot of tags you may post aren't entirely relevant to what you are typing about. So just be sure you don't spam tags because its not a good idea for becoming popular because it can steal other peoples traffic who maybe wrote better stuff than you.

How many tags should you have on your hub?I have over 20 on some of my hubs. I think my hub score is getting lowered because I have too many tags. Is this possible to have too many tags? If so will my score go back up if I remove a few. How many is okay?

Ok, I did look at the FAQ's before coming here, and I found a hub on tags and read it. But it seemed to contradict another article I read. I also read through the comments and noticed that another hubber posted my question 4 months ago and has yet to get a reply so I am going to ask...
