That was the intent; I am glad you are finding this helpful. It is a quick
and easy way to saturate the threads (detracting from subject lines like
"Linux burned my house" or "Roy Culley is a flapper") while keeping some
notion of categorisation.
As a side note, I sometimes feel awkward labelling someone's opinion or an
off-topic discussion [News]. Too many tags complicate filters too, which
boggles the mind.
