What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Please merge into and create a synonym as they seem to cover same subject.

86 questions are using , and 23 questions are using . Even if those 23 can be manually retagged, it doesn't guarantee that there will be new entries with that tag, and I don't see anybody using them for different things.

Tags with the same meaning, is meaningless!

e.g.,

This question was tagged like:

caching frame browser-cache browser-caching 

And this question was tagged like:

visual-studio-2008 asp.net-mvc-2 caching browser-cache browser-caching 

Users have applied three cache related tags to identify a cache problem on a single question.

If there is a tag that is synonym, the tag should not burninate. –  kiamlaluno Jul 4 '12 at 19:52
