Hello there, and welcome to the forum! 🙂
you’re making a bunch of interesting points indeed… I’m pinning your post.
As I mentioned on getsatisfaction, we’re currently giving low priorities to the GUI – but what you ask does indeed make sense. There has been several discussions about tagging tabbles and about the OR feature (now we just have AND and NOT). I guess the OR would be priority, but your points make sense too… 🙂
One thing: we’ve just introduced regular expressions in the auto-tagging rules, and maybe you could be interested in giving it a go? Have a look a this post.
Thanks again 🙂
