Maybe. I have been thinking about some kind of sublisting since the last
EUC, and since Joe brought it up there is a good chance members will
start using it. And if there is a much better chance the right
members read your post (many important members filter out
uninteresting subjects) if you tag it, it might even
continue to be used. The future will tell...
