Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I think and should be merged. They have a similar meaning and the questions used by each tag are the same, as the tags are not always correctly used.

Why the downvotes? – Mooseman Jul 11 '13 at 17:55
    
Well, similar != exact. – Undo Jul 11 '13 at 18:44
    
On Meta, downvotes mean the users don't agree with you (unlike the main site where they often mean the question is poorly researched). – Johnny Bones Jul 11 '13 at 18:47
    
@Undo No it does not. However, the way they are used on the site, are exact. – Mooseman Jul 11 '13 at 20:22

There appears to be several jquery events not related to binding: http://www.w3schools.com/jquery/jquery_events.asp

Here's an example of a SO jquery question that doesn't have to do with binding: Does setting jQuery.data() trigger an event?

The events are only used to bind the events, whether you're using .on, .click/.mouseover/etc., etc. – Mooseman Jul 11 '13 at 14:03

If you have a question about an event, it's not always going to specifically be about BINDING the event. – Johnny Bones Jul 11 '13 at 14:06
    
Can you provide an example? I can see that custom events wouldn't fall under binding, but jquery-events is being used anyway, so there's no separation in questions. – Mooseman Jul 11 '13 at 14:09
    
    
If you edit your answer, I can remove the downvote. However, being that questions that, in your case, should only use jquery-event-binding are mostly using jquery-events, I still believe that the tags should be merged. – Mooseman Jul 11 '13 at 14:19
    
I don't think they have same meaning, but given how they seem to be used now merge makes sense - now there is no added value in them separate anyway, even if there should be some. – Mołot Jul 11 '13 at 14:27
