"talk" probably gets more pairs of eyes on it than the Q&A subforum 
https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewforum.php?id=10 (which is probably 
the nearest equivalent).  Both require registration with something that 
new participants already have (an email address in one case; some OSM 
login credentials in the other).  Both have had similar numbers of posts 

Some people will prefer forums to mailing lists, some vice versa; why 
not suggest both?

I'd suggest "talk" as a more sensible introductory mailing list to 
"tagging" as the latter is higher volume and more in depth in a 
particular area of OSM.

Best Regards,
