Why not make it a tag synonym of the correctly spelled one? –  Makoto Feb 6 '13 at 18:47

This is currently practically impossible, as far as I know. The maximum tag length is 25 characters. That is the whole reason behind the "misspelling" of .

So the options are to either allow longer tags, or to simply choose the most common one and retag the other questions to that.

I was not aware of the maximum length until you pointed it out. Can the tag with 88 posts be merged in? –  Bryan Luby Feb 6 '13 at 18:57

Yes, 25 is the maximum length in the tags table. –  ben is uǝq backwards Feb 6 '13 at 18:58
    
@BryanLuby I'm sure that's possible. But given the relatively low number of questions with that tag, perhaps a manual effort and overall cleanup might not be a bad idea either? –  Bart Feb 6 '13 at 19:13
    
@Bart I don't have retagging privileges yet. Plus I don't want to flood the review queue with 88 edits and swamp the front page. –  Bryan Luby Feb 6 '13 at 19:36
