What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

IMHO, (2066) and (65) describe symptoms of an error, and is perhaps a borderline meta tag.

Similar tags: [error] and [not-working].

crash != p0rbelm

I am not sure what world you are living in, but in mine they are not the same at all

A crash implies that something actually crashed in the program.
A p0rbelm implies nothing. nothing at all. Just that the question was asked.


As it says in the crash tag wiki:

A crash is the result of an unrecoverable error that causes the program to stop completely. During the software development, crashes can be avoided by implementing proper error and exception handling.

I agree. Ideally, folks would use an exception name when that's available, but "crash" still has some meaning. –  Shog9 Dec 22 '11 at 16:49

OK, my bad for choosing a bad example tag. My point is, a crash is simply a result of an error (in loose terms, a problem) and the cause/solution is relative to the technology at hand. –  Shawn Chin Dec 22 '11 at 16:53
    
While trying to rephrase the question, I convinced myself that you're right. Bah. –  Shawn Chin Dec 22 '11 at 17:05
