Aliasing web -> spider_web.
Reason: They are the same; seeing as no uploads so far use any other senses of "web".

I went and split the web and spider_web tag. Using the spider_web wiki, I migrated images of non-net web structures to the web tag. Cocoons and disorganized masses of webbing (post #279781), non-ordered strands (post #317285), single strands (post #253525), etc being put under web. There were some cases of both, like post #307909 (organized net web in the background, but with disorganized webbing used for restraining in the foreground).
So spider web is for net-like webs, and web is for non-net-like webs?
I'm not sure the naming is clear. Web sounds like a more general term for any webs. And spider web sounds like it could be used for any spider web even if it isn't a net, such as in post #1401244, post #668954, etc. Perhaps we could choose different names for them?
While spider web could sound like any silk made by a spider, that would be inaccurate, as the term spider web refers to the net/snare construct created by spiders. The other uses of their silk to produce nests, cocoons, and the like aren't referred to as "spider webs." If you wanted a term for the material that spiders make the web out of that would be "spider silk." The web itself is a "device" or "structure" composed of spider silk.
If you wish to change the naming for web, I guess that's fine, though I can't think of anything as an alternative for naming (though I am in a rush and tired, so that doesn't help). As far as the naming for the spider's net, that structure as far as I'm aware is only naturally created by spiders, and I don't think there are things that create a net like structure like they do, so trying to change that name imo is even harder and you'll only create something likely very awkward sounding.
