This one's been bugging me for a while now and I have yet to think of a good solution.
We have one question tagged
[spiciness], another tagged
[hot], and a few more tagged
[spices] even though they aren't really about "spices" per se (fresh chili peppers are not what I would call a spice).
[hot] seems way too generic, and something about
[spiciness] bugs me to no end - perhaps it's just the fact that it's so similar to
[spices] and could easily become a point of confusion.
But I'm not sure what to put in its place. I'm talking about questions like How can you make a sauce less spicy/hot? I suppose, in technical terms, that such questions are pretty consistently talking about capsaicin, but I have to assume that the majority of people asking questions about it aren't going to know that.
So... is there a tag we can use to identify questions that are talking about "that" kind of spice/heat? Do we need one? Should we just lump it under
[spices], or remove any spice-related tags altogether? Should we borrow from another language and use something like
[picante] (sounds pretentious, but then again we have
Any other ideas, thoughts, recommendations?
