just a question of where you draw the lines and why. I think most  
people here agree some lines were poorly drawn. We all make mistakes. :)


+1 for the ongoing vote.

insofar as tagging is concerned, please don't try to reinvent the  
wheel. Please check out how other systems do it. Please check out  
other codes bases. Please talk to people who have done this on  
monumental scales. Tags are seriously non-trivial thing to do,  
especially in a scaleable way. Consider your DB schemas deeply. Plan  
out what functionalities you will need and want. Please please do not  
do this half-assedly. :)

The world is watching. ;)
