Please don't change it to match the synonymous tag—the blank popup is currently the only way to know if the tag is a synonym without clicking through. –  Dori May 20 '11 at 23:49

@Dori: I'm not sure why would you like to differentiate between them. But don't you think that making them "usable" and being more explicit about synonym-tags (add text saying so, on the dialog or a symbol may be) is much better for all users? :D –  Shady M. Najib May 21 '11 at 3:10
