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

Some bad synonyms like phpX → php repeatedly get proposed again and even upvoted and active.

As long as the users are not sufficiently aware of the meaning of synonyms, a black list would help. This would ideally be pattern-based to allow for blocking of [phpN]→[php] or [javaN]→[java], [javaN.N]→[java] etc.
