The tag may be incorrectly spelled on StackOverflow. I found (with -or) to be the correct spelling.

Can someone correct the spelling?


Although I found the product name spelled both ways, the correct spelling is, indeed ValueInjecter.

...Not so fast!

Yes, the proper English phrase would be "value injector". But it appears that there is a fairly popular code library for ASP.NET applications that goes by the name Value Injecter.

Chances are, questions tagged refer to that library.

There might be some questions that aren't about that library that got that tag applied to them accidentally, but those questions need to be manually retagged.

There are only 53 questions, I skimmed them all and the previews indicate that they are all about the popular library. Also, beat you by 5 seconds. FGITW! :) – Kevin Vermeer May 11 '12 at 21:47
I found I am wrong...I should be able to down-vote my own question??? ha hah – IAbstract May 11 '12 at 22:06

Don't do this.

You are correct that -or is the correct spelling for most uses of the word 'injector' (as used in fuel injectors etc.).

However, is the correct spelling of the name of the program referenced in these questions. It's spelled that way in their URL: and on their website:

The author, o, knows that this is not the correct spelling. However, it's too late to change now and they don't want to change it as reported in the response to this closed bug report.

Therefore, the spelling should not be changed in the tag.
