Recently I had a question and it was re tagged to dispatch. But it has only 3 followers with no description.

What does this tag even mean?

Should the tags and be synonyms of ?

Probably en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_dispatch, but I'll have a look. – Robert Harvey Jul 21 '11 at 21:44
    
“Dynamic binding” can also mean “dynamic scoping”, but from a quick glance at the current dynamic-binding questions, the tag currently means dynamic dispatch. – Gilles Jul 21 '11 at 22:01

can apparently mean anything that the word “dispatch” can mean. There's method dispatch, which is a kind of, but also event dispatch, function dispatch (in a non-OO context), TCP requests, some Wordpress concept that I know nothing about, an HTTP library called Dispatch, etc. There doesn't seem to be much value in this tag.

I recommend to go over the list, and if you understand what a question is about and can come up with better tags, go for it.
