That was exactly my point.

And I don't see any great "PR" advantage, personally.  Is it
so hard for users of SE sites to learn about tags and filters?
Especially Emacs users and potential users?

If Emacs really needs PR that reaches past an individual's
ability to learn how to search for Emacs questions and answers
and throws "!! EMACS !!" directly in their face so they'll
notice it better, then it's a sad day for Emacs and Emacs
users generally (IMHO).
