I agree that categorizing messages is a good idea. However, basing the categories on the tags does not sound so good, because: it would lead to an indefinitely growing number of categories, and the categories' names would not be very well defined, as each user would be tempted to use his own term for a tag/category. What we need is a fixed classification scheme. And there should not be too many categories.

Well, yeah, I agree the number of official/publicly-viewable tags should probably be limited. However I would also certainly not mind an unlimited number of personal/private tags, such as ignore-post/ignore-thread and, as you say, things that only have meaning for me, like sqops, strings, fp, repl, specs, exec, pbr, regex, preproc, threads, doc, todo, done (I could go on and on).
