The difference is that one is the that was in higher usage than the other.

So are you saying you visited the 50 places, or are you saying that if
I have a scheme I prefer, then I should go ahead and "fix up" any
tagging I like?
That is not how this project works.

The wiki should reflect usage. And until your automated edit-
gluten_free was in higher usage by nearly 3x.

Did you not see my email when someone asked about "transitioning
tags"? I went into depth about that process.
It is not right to go around making automated edits. The fact it's a
small number is relevant only in that it didn't effect many people-
but I'm one of those people.
Sometimes we use bots when there is large scale consensus, or when
there is an obvious typo (if I had typed diet:gluten_freee, then that
might be a good reason to change things).
But this is not the same thing, and I'm asking you to either go ahead
and check the objects yourself, or please remove your change.
