AFAIU delicious, flickr, and folksonomy in general it is crucial to bind the tag to the user who _uses_ it. A tag is not simply "this element is tagged as 'xxx'" but "user 'xy' tagged this element as 'xxx'". this way you can filter tag by just using
- your tags
- everybody's tags
- everybodys tags except from people you consider "spammers"
