refers to the program Things. Makes sense. There was no wiki on this, so I just stumbled on to it. Of the 6 questions tagged with at least 4 of them give some specifics as to what "things" is.

My proposal

be turned into or at least something more descriptive like . My first thought when I saw the tag was "what things?" which lead me to do some digging and put in a wiki edit request. Ultimately, the tag is way too generic and has the possibility of being misused. It should be a synonym for the new tag or burninated.

Given that this is a non-destructive and tiny retagging task, I retagged all questions to and adapted the Tag Wiki Excerpt appropriately.

The tag should therefore be vanishing in the next 24 hours.
