I don't see logic behind a network and a networking tag, does anyone else? Can they be merged into Networking if that is the case?
Personally I think this probably will need to wait until tag synonyms are available. Until synonyms or a blacklist is available people will continue to use the [network] tag.
I did some research on that topic. I found no evidence that there were differences in usage of both terms. So I've gone ahead and merged the [network] tag into the (more often used) [networking] tag.
