Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

While editing this question, I have noticed how scattered the tags related to encryption / decryption have become.

Here are my suggestions for some of the main tags and their outcasts that I have noticed:

  1. Merge into .
  2. Merge into .
  3. Create a new tag and merge and into it.

How about doing this cleanup, and merging the outcasts into the existing or newly-created proper tags?

Decryption is already a synonym of encryption. – Awesome Poodles Oct 26 '12 at 2:11
Doesn't decryption differ a lot from encryption? I mean, although there is a common theme between both, but far from synonyms, one is the opposite of the other! ___ I'll use a famous misquotation here: "Houston, we have a problem!" – TheLima Oct 26 '12 at 2:30
Well yes, we would hope that decryption would be qualitatively different from encryption -- or else our bank accounts and porn stashes are doomed! But I didn't make or vote to approve that synonym. – Awesome Poodles Oct 26 '12 at 2:43
You might not have voted or approved the synonym, but you can help fix the problem that it configures! - For our porn stash's sake! =P – TheLima Oct 26 '12 at 2:48
