We have a tag with two questions:

These questions are both about discussing veg*nism with non-veg*ns. I feel the word fails to capture this idea unambiguously - it could mean almost anything and is likely to be applied quite randomly by users (even with usage guidance - this is not always read!)

If we need a tag for communicating with non-veg*ns, what should we call that tag? I propose we burn the and replace it with something more descriptive like

  • I created the "suffering plants" question and I added the "sharing" tag ONLY because I already saw on the other question you mention, and they looked similar to me. I'm not an english native speaker, so of course a better tagging is more than welcome.

  • @Attilio my intention in this post was definitely not to criticise anyone. I assumed that the second post had been tagged following the first. Since "sharing" could be about anything I felt we should come up with something more descriptive.

  • I never thought you were criticizing. You are doing excellent work and I'm happy that you're leading the reputation ranking of this group.

I agree. As you said, the tag could be used randomly, without any relevance for the question.

Moreover, I think it is "too broad" for the topic of our community as it doesn't help to narrow a question scope.

Using is more specific and is, for this reason, a good suggestion.

    I have gone ahead and retagged the two posts for now, since it can easily be reverted if people disagree

  • I agree, I used tag sharing because of a lack of better word. Outreach works well though. Commented Feb 6, 2017 at 1:41
