Lorin and Kenneth identified the real issue very well. I think a lot of
the discomfort with not having nested folders is due to a habit of
putting off properly identifying an item. We keep bringing up the book
“Getting Things Done” but the idea of nested folders and multiple
library databases are in stark contrast to the very first steps of GTD.
Folders poorly identify information. At best they just create more
inboxes. Because you haven’t properly identified the specific item you
will waste more time searching six weeks down the road when you need to
produce a receipt, or email the photo of your family eating pizza in
Times Square to your sister. Tagging is a far more fluid way to identify
something at the very moment it enters your system.

Luis, we're all really, really happy that Yojimbo is "perfect" for your way of gathering information. But it's quite pompous of you to think that everyone else is wrong because we like to sometimes organize our data in physical divisions.

And, repeat after me, YOJIMBO IS NOT A GTD TOOL. It is a digital junk drawer; a tool that you have just been lucky enough to be able to "fit" into the GTD principles.
