Can someone with the required rep/privileges start the wiki and add a little information on the Classic ASP tag [asp], with perhaps a reminder that ASP is not ASP.NET? A large number of users are mistagging ASP.NET posts with the [asp] tag.

Edit — content to add:

ASP (Active Server Pages), also known as Classic ASP or ASP Classic, is a legacy server side scripting technology developed by Microsoft, which is developed mostly in VBScript. Today it has been largely superseded by [tag:asp.net]

I hate to be the one to break this to you, but the kind of people who tag ASP.NET questions as [asp] are not the kind of people who are going to bother reading the tag wiki - or even notice that their question was retagged. –  Aarobot Nov 10 '10 at 15:31
yea i know :(, but until SO provides tactile feedback by way of electric shock, theres not alot that can be done about this really. –  jasper Nov 10 '10 at 15:54
