IMHO, (2066) and (65) describe symptoms of an error, and is perhaps a borderline meta tag.

Similar tags: [error] and [not-working].

crash != p0rbelm

I am not sure what world you are living in, but in mine they are not the same at all

A crash implies that something actually crashed in the program.
A p0rbelm implies nothing. nothing at all. Just that the question was asked.


As it says in the crash tag wiki:

A crash is the result of an unrecoverable error that causes the program to stop completely. During the software development, crashes can be avoided by implementing proper error and exception handling.

    I agree. Ideally, folks would use an exception name when that's available, but "crash" still has some meaning.

    OK, my bad for choosing a bad example tag. My point is, a crash is simply a result of an error (in loose terms, a problem) and the cause/solution is relative to the technology at hand.

  • While trying to rephrase the question, I convinced myself that you're right. Bah.
