What makes a burger a [tag:burger]?

there should be a diabetic tag for diabetic users!

Can replace a tag I accidentally created?

Deleting the tag is easy; just remove it from your question, and the system will automatically clean it up within 24 hours. I guess that after that period, you could create a flints tag, but should ...
