Thanks for sharing why you think tagging should be minimised but I only see this as a shortfall of the evernote tagging implementation. It's only really usable on the desktop client and abandoned everywhere else. I use something similar to and find it the only way to stay organised. Tags are essential to this tool I think. The search queries power rely on using tags but we need better ways to keep them organised and relevant. I completely agree that it's difficult to remember the tags and that why we need help from the tool - Evernote.
