Hi Kent,

I'm just a user following all your hard work and input, but I agree with 
you.  I, too, am still trying to figure out a specific workflow that 
works better for me using tags.  I know I'm missing understanding on all 
this, but I do understand that many untagged messages are messages just 
needing to be tagged.
