Just a few hours ago the was made a synonym for . I am requesting a reversal of that for the following reasons:

  1. There were 2563 questions tagged with that, far more than any other of the css synonyms (68 is the next highest).
  2. Element selection in css, while of course related to css, is a distinctly different topic than actual manipulation of the selected element through the properties being applied.

Having a distinction in tags to locate answers and to ask questions related to selection versus manipulation was beneficial for me (and I would guess others).

Thank you for your consideration.

  • While nothing was stated here as far as discussion goes, it appears that it was reversed within the last 15 minutes or so by someone. – ScottS Jun 21 '13 at 18:01
  • It was probably BoltClock. He also left this comment on a similar question of mine. – animuson Jun 21 '13 at 18:20
  • He is also the undisputed king of the css-selectors tag, so you may be right. – ScottS Jun 21 '13 at 18:34
  • Looks like someone else went and proposed the synonym again a month after this was posted, which was then just approved today. Deleted again. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Sep 10 '13 at 5:41
  • @BoltClock'saUnicorn: That may be an ongoing issue (I don't suppose there is any way to block a synonym suggestion permanently). – ScottS Sep 10 '13 at 12:22

Wow, I did not see this at all. Maybe it's because I was too busy writing up a diatribe of my own, before deciding to hell with the synonym (and filing away what I'd written into Evernote instead).

Thank you for bringing this up. I think it's safe to say you were in a far better position to do so than I was, and indeed, you put this much more elegantly and succinctly than I could have.

  • Does that mean you are the one who reversed it? – ScottS Jun 21 '13 at 18:59
  • @ScottS: Yes, indeed. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jun 21 '13 at 19:00
  • At the expense of a frivolous comment---Yeaahhhh!!!! – ScottS Jun 21 '13 at 19:01
  • @ScottS: Actually, I'd typed YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS in the answer field, but I got too lazy to hold the S key until it reached the character limit so I figured I'd type something more coherent instead to go with your question. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jun 21 '13 at 19:03
  • I did not initially realize what had happened, but once I was more informed, I was quick to try to get it reversed. – ScottS Jun 21 '13 at 19:07
