There are lots of minhagim of dubious origins or worse and many, many teshuvot which refer to practices as minhag shtus. I submit my most recent question as evidence that questions about minhagei shtus do come up and would benefit from a tag.


Anyone with 300 rep on the main site can create new tags by just using them in a question. If a tag seems like something that applies to a bunch of questions and can be useful as a way of grouping them (and is not a meta-tag), then go ahead and add it to some of those questions!
