I just noticed there are two tags: and . A quick look at a random sampling of questions tagged suggest that these two tags could, and perhaps should, be merged (I suggest into ), as they both tend to describe the act of splitting an object.

Thoughts?

Can't we just burninate them both? I can't see what either bring to the table. –  ben is uǝq backwards Oct 1 '12 at 8:01

If you're talking about SO then please keep split. It has a significant meaning in the hadoop world. That is to say, there will be questions about splits and hadoop. –  Chris Gerken Oct 1 '12 at 11:37

Just to be a bit more visible... Do not remove the tag, please. In the hadoop world the term refers to a chunk of an input to a mapper and there are many legitimate questions possible concerning the definition, distribution and processing of hadoop inputs.

The term "splitting" has no real meaning in the hadoop world.

Edit:

OK. This time I'll try to be constructive: Why not get rid of , rename to and then blacklist ?
