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

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).

@David: I stand corrected. – sth Jul 22 '10 at 21:37
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
