There are only twelve questions tagged [facebooksdk]. That's low enough that they can be retagged to [facebook] manually. That'll make [facebooksdk] unused, and unused tags are deleted after 24 hours. – Pops Dec 17 '12 at 19:57
Bloody hell, I thought I nuked that thing. Twice. – Charles Dec 17 '12 at 23:04

I retagged all the questions under the tag, although I'm curious how the tag got created in the first place. The oldest question with the tag was asked on December 12th, so it had to have been created recently. But according to their rules, creating a tag that only differs from another tag by the addition of a hyphen is not allowed. This leads me to believe that the rule may possibly not be applied to tags which are only synonyms to other tags. Definitely something worth looking into, and fixing at that.

Could be related to the nature of the FSO tag filtering site... There have been some oddities there before. – Lix Dec 17 '12 at 23:05
This isn't the first time we've had a phantom synonyms causing trouble recently. Recently bug/bugs was a thing, and game/game-development has also sprung back to life... – Charles Dec 17 '12 at 23:07
@Charles: This one is slightly different than those, because by all standards it shouldn't be createable once it's dead. – animuson Dec 17 '12 at 23:08
@animuson, indeed, but if game and game-development are also synonyms, why are people able to create new game-development questions? I suspect that facebooksdk was synonymized before the hyphen ban happened and is allowed to exist now only because something in the synonym system is busted. – Charles Dec 17 '12 at 23:10
I'm confused... game is a synonym of game-development, so what exactly would prevent new questions? – animuson Dec 17 '12 at 23:12
I'm confused also. Not a few days ago, it was reversed. – Charles Dec 17 '12 at 23:33
