What is this [blocking] tag?

It looks like a tag that should be burninated to me.

Duplicate tag [vms] and [openvms]

It should be synonymed the other way around. The product was originally VMS and then it became OpenVMS which I believe it is still called. Other than that I don't see any real reason not to do this.

Whence the [language] and [languages] tags?

I can't see any good reason why either of these tags exists. As far as I'm concerned, they can be burninated.

Is it usefull to have both tags 'datastax' and 'datastax-enterprise'?

I'm not adverse to doing that and making datastax (the company) a synonym for datastax-enterprise (currently their main product) . Users with sufficient reputation can are encouraged to propose and ...

Let's patch up the [patch] tag!

This isn't a widely used tag, getting under 120 questions after 12 years. But the confusion in there is clear. I'm fine with weeding it, and sorting what's in there between maybe patch-cable and ...

Please rename freenas tag to truenas

And we have zero truenas questions in the database that I can see. Nice branding strategy. This should be doable.

Please silently tag rocky-linux

The only silent-retag tooling available is by staff, not moderators. I've been reviewing the search and there are a number of questions that are already at the five tag limit. This is in part due to ...

Duplicate tags [graylog] and [graylog2]

Seems legit. I also note that a lot of the questions tagged with one are also tagged with the other, which is often a giveaway. Let me get that fixed up...

Duplicate tag [service] and [services]

I had a quick look at the questions using those tags and I agree that there is not real distinction between service and services. I have merged the tags and created the tag synonym mapping services →...

Are these essentially the same tags?

I wouldn't. Even when Office 365 contains Exchange Online, Exchange Online could be subscribed as a standalone service which don't necessarily have the Office Suite apps. https://products.office.com/...

Duplicate tag [vms] and [openvms]

Creating synonym is overkilling it: it needs 5 users with a score of 5 on the said tag to be done, or a moderator (the last one is very busy) compared with a single retag that requires 2 minutes and a ...

Proposal for rename of tcp-offload-engine tag

Sounds reasonable to me. If there's no objections in the next few days, I'll make the change. Maybe remind me, @juhist, in case I forget. <grin>

Is [filter] about [filtering]?

I waited long to answer you as I'm uncertain for that one. I'm in between, as it could mean two distinct thing, but I see your case where each are used interchangeably. From my understanding filter ...

Should the Tag #ansible-playbook be merged into the Tag #ansible?

I believe I suggested a while ago to mark ansible-playbook as a synonym of ansible but the suggestion didn't receive enough votes. While I believe that, strictly technical speaking, ansible, ansible-...

Should the Tag #ansible-playbook be merged into the Tag #ansible?

My (extremely) understanding of the Ansible ecosystem is that "Ansible" by itself most properly refers to the entire suite of Ansible-related tools, with most people understanding that saying "ansible"...

Rename and add tag synonym for [tag:windows-subsystem-linux] like the remaining stackexchange sites

I don't see a problem to rename the tag. It's more logic to rename it to the real name. It's done.

Are these essentially the same tags?

I agree with Felipe. I wanted to add this as a comment, but it is too long. So ... Exchange is not Office. The Office 365 suite is a collection of end-user tools like Word, Excel or Outlook that can ...
