Right now, there are a lot of unnecessary corruption tags. We have , , and . Frankly way too many.

Corruption is the most commonly used one, and makes the most sense. We should synonym or burninate the others.

1 Answer 1


There were only 2 , so I manually changed them to . The other tags contain only a few questions, and I think there's few enough that they can be handled manually.

I'm all for using as the correct tag, and since new users can't create new tags until they have 200 rep, I hope simply manually removing the other tags will keep them away for good as the more experienced users seem to recognise you should only create a tag for a good reason.

  • @splattne - my general rule of thumb is if there's > 50 questions, ask a mod. Otherwise it can be handled in a few small batches manually. Commented May 21, 2011 at 13:48
  • @splattne can you take care of the corrupted tag as well? I'm afraid if it's not synonymed, some wanker will use it. Thanks for the help! Commented May 21, 2011 at 13:50
  • @Holocryptic done. Thank you!
