**Subset of: Should we allow "name" tags?

I receive Dr. Mercola's newsletter and have used his posts to create a number of posts. I wondered about creating a tag. I'm open to suggestions either way. He's the originator and promotor of many various food and drug related claims and has a wide audience. Thus, I could see tagging posts that begin with him or are substantiated by his work. On the other hand, if it isn't seen as helpful, I'll leave it alone.

Thanks for any input.

Mercola has peddled all kinds of pseudoscience, he doesn't seem to be very selective but rehashes everything that he can find. I don't think it would be a useful classification.

But our tagging in general is pretty random, so there is certainly room for improvement.

  • I can definitely see that take. Thanks for the input.

Uh, in March 2012, I created a tag, and added several questions to it, without reference to this question. It was only just brought to my attention.
