About half of the lists I subscribe to prepend a tag to the subject. 
Personally, I find scanning the subject lines in these lists far more 
difficult, and I'm sure most left-to-right readers (over a certain 
age) will have the same difficulty. I know nothing about list 
managing software, but I'm inclined to think that the lists that 
don't use tags took the decision to turn off the feature. :)

So I'm for filters and no tags. I probably won't write to the 
Scottish Parliament about it, but if the voting gets close I may have 
to offer my son's second favorite BeyBlade to Heather as a bribe.
