This brings up an interesting point regarding reasoning about information from 
tags. Over 10 years
ago, when I was part of a team mapping a lexicon to Wordnet, there was concern 
that some of the
synsets contained derogatory terms mixed in with value-neutral terms within the 
same synset. We
ended up introducing various relationships which addressed these linguistic 
values. Perhaps more
simply, we can create a collection of tags that are considered to be "judgment" 
tags - or create
some other way of representing properties (such as "taste" "user community", 
etc.) on tags - which
raise the notion of tags from indexing and nomenclature to a more 
semantically-expressive system.     (02)
