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

Suggesting a tag as a synonym of itself is just silly and shouldn't be allowed.

On a related note, some moderator could remove the suggested [methods] -> [methods] synonym (or a few people could downvote it).

My downvote (to put it at -3) on the [methods] synonym auto-nuked it. – Jon Seigel Jul 22 '10 at 21:41

@Jon I kind of did this on purpose, but the purpose was misguided :) – waffles Jul 22 '10 at 23:46
