I'm glad you think so. It is hard to say how much work it would involve for the moderators, if much at all. But I thought it was worth bringing up for consideration.
I think that is the way it is for basically anything Stephanos. No category is untouched by things from other categories. A category doesn't mean "nothing from other categories", but it has a chief or predominating spirit or theme etc. And indeed, I find that the topics of our posts do as well, despite whatever else may come in. It is by that that a thread would be categorized by.
It is difficult to keep up with what threads/discussions we had in the past in important areas of discussion, when the threads are so mixed up. The categories would make the "past" of Philosophy 101 readily sorted and viewable here in Philosophy, so people may better know about them, participate in them, and use them to help in the present, instead of much the contrary.
