Is it time for a canonical question/answer on non-hostname-aware protocols?

Synonym request: [tcpip] --> [tcp]

I think tcpip is a poor choice for a tag name. I would even say the term TCPIP should in general be avoided. Sometimes the term TCPIP is used by people talking about the entire protocol suite ...

That tag needs to go. The word messages is simply not descriptive enough to be a useful tag name. Tag names such as email-messages and var-log-messages may be useful as replacement. At least they are ...

ASCII is more portable than unicode, and for that reason I would consider it to be preferred, whenever it does not break the meaning of the text. Given that ASCII was designed to express English, it ...
