Seems to me they can be beneficial when doing a search. You tag it by adding the main components of the thread. Say I was offering up a potential trade idea and a year later that trade happens, I wanna go back and prove I was out in front of that deal. I could do a search but what if I don't recall the name of the thread or the people involved were guys whose names come up all the time in trade scenarios. If I tagged it in such a way that would be maybe a little unique it would make it easier to find.
One of my favorite trades would be Arroyo for Escobar plus a prospect
. So if I tag it exactly that way I should have that thread at the forefront of my search results.
