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

There is a tag called

This I believe, should be two separate tags. Whenever I click on it or do a search for it, instead of searching for

Also note that this is still a bug. We've just cured one symptom of the bug.

I retagged it, yes. It didn't warrant closing and I'm not a mod at the main SO site so I couldn't do that anyway. – Joel Coehoorn Nov 13 '09 at 21:23
