I never manually assign tags (well, very rarely at most).  Tags are
typically assigned by filters.  For example, your email was flagged
with plug and inbox.  When I hit send+archive on this reply the inbox
tag will be removed.from the thread.  If another email comes in on the
thread, the inbox tag will be added to it again.

I also typically use search to find random emails.  This is also
something I've found generally doesn't work terribly well with IMAP
and multi-GB mailboxes.
