In this question, a user created despite existing. I've left it alone for now.

The system shouldn't permit this.

Is the possible brokenness in the pluralization filter also related?

  • I was just able to create superping despite super-ping existing. I'll edit this back into the question once the grace period ends as to provide proof. – Charles Jul 5 '13 at 1:12

    As super-ping was bugging me, I've found some alternate hyphens to abuse. (Do you have any idea how hard it is for me to create three new tags for one question!?) – Charles Jul 5 '13 at 2:02

  • is Brokenness a word? If it is it probably shouldn't have two nn's - maybe I should ask on english.stackexchange.com – Toby Allen Jul 6 '13 at 8:08

Fix rolled out in build 2013.7.9.826. The issues were indeed related. The checks were performed only on tags with approved synonyms. Only normal users with rep > 500 who are not mods will notice the change.
