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

On Stack Overflow, the and tags are used synonymously. The 'post' tag wiki also describes that it's to be used to categorize HTTP POST questions.

Would someone with sufficient permission (more than 2500 reputation and a total answer score of 5 or more on the tag) suggest one of the tags as a synonym of the other, please?

The other common HTTP methods have similar duplicate tags. – Kevin Reid Oct 1 '13 at 4:20

I'd prefer to kill as too generic a tag; although for web-focused developers, it will probably implicitly mean HTTP POST, it can also correctly refer to message-passing mechanisms.
