so the idea of this message board is to have a p2p messaging system that we can use to coordinate whatever projects we want to be working on. anyone can create a topic which will be replicated to everyone in the network. spam control works based on consensus since content is difficult to delete unless everyone removes it. this is a feature. lost data is no bueno. the consensus ui is not the best, so that's something that we can address.
i think an adhoc tagging system is a good way to go. down the road we can make a UI that automates filtering through "closed threads" in a more gitcorp way if that's something we decide is needed. to start with, i think the mailing list format will work fine.
if we consider https://www.reddit.com/r/seventhworldproblems/ we can see a nice pattern for tagging stuff.

once we settle on a common vocabulary these can be documented in the project repo. the goal, more or less, is to capture the jargon we already use and make it a bit easier to search for.
