a method of providing for private tags

Interesting old proposal showed up under one of the old ^ tags. 

A private tag is being defined as a tag that is only visible to a specific group.  My proposal is to prefix that tag with "^" followed by the group name with spaces in the group name converted to "_". 

Do you think that would be useful ?

Update:  I think this was the train of though that lead to inventing the censor's tag which forces an item private to a group .. "can only be seen by a group".    We have not implemented tags private to groups.  The sql would be very tricky indeed .. not to mention the complexity of the tag syntax.

It is kinda complex.

I think it would only make sense if it showed up in the group system items as just the tag "wishes 2"

Yes that could be arranged.

Might eliminate some of Winnie's "geekiness" complaints. It would also be nice if they were immune to Google searches.
