I wouldn't take it personally. I have it on good authority that the guy's just a prick. But, he's a prick who's going through a massive tag cleanup effort at the moment, so he probably bumped into a group of your old questions because of their tags.

I've gone with @kasperd 's suggestion and synonymized, then merged 443 to port-443.

If you really feel it adds value to Server Fault and the Question having that particular tag added, I'll be glad to toss it in there, I just don't see it myself.
