Re: tagging discussion

I don't see content tagging as only negative. I could imagine such a
facility being used positively such as tagging some content as "child
friendly".

Which is why my interest in the topic is more in mechanism than
policy.

One would still have to trust the source of the tag, reputational
issues, which remain a largely unsolved problem on the net.

For example attempts at attaching reputation to DKIM (et al) which I
know was a hope for DKIM.

Merely knowing it came from who it claims to have come from is really
only half the battle, it might be bona-fide mail from an evil party.

It's a potentially huge topic, perhaps it needs a tag!
