The group/user blocklists are not intended to be used as tag blocklists so it wouldn't be as simple as just removing the limit because there is currently a technical limitation: all group/user UUIDs are passed inside API URLs (for stuff like caching) and URLs can have length limits.

I do hope tag blocking comes before finding ways around this limitation (if that ever happens) 🙏

P.S. I think I remember someone sharing a UserScript here for client-side blocking (this way of blocking probably won't be implemented inside the site because of stuff like misleading empty pages tho)
Edit: Here it is

Above reply is correct, regarding the technical issues. Sitewide tag blacklists are planned and will solve the issue you're describing here.
