Since thought-experiments are so common in physics, is thought-experiment something we should create?
I think I'm against.
- thought-experiment wouldn't give you any data about the type of physics being considered, you'd still have to do a good job tagging the question with the kind of physics you are talking about that. In that sense this would be a meta-tag.
- It would, however be very attractive the kind of poster whose entire understanding of physics comes from a couple of pop-sci books on quantum mechanics, black holes and cosmology. Indeed, I think that we'd get a a great many question tagged with only that tag. While I try not to get miffed by these posters I feel that their questions are rarely very good, and I have a vague hope that if they have to think to find some tags they may have to formulate their thoughts little more clearly.
