Danny Sullivan thinks open tagging will not work, will be prone to tag spamming.

I think this is the same problem as open software. we should promote accountability in
tagging. of course, I don't know how to reconcile this with privacy. But google works
because people make links to things, in the course of making their own web pages,
and the structure that people build through their own work contributes to everyone's
intelligence. If people could only tag their own work, or their own posts, but
toogle software could use similarity measures to suggest tags for other pages/posts
we would be that much closer to using the collective intelligence of the web
for distributed tagging.
