Upon noticing that the question was then the only one tagged [serverfault], I did a bit more reading on MSO...and now suspect that I did something unholy: I subsequently dropped the [serverfault] tag that I added to the question.
(This just keeps getting messier I know....) :/
What confuses me is that the first round of MSO reading led me to believe that [serverfault] was an appropriate tag to use...and post-dates the second round of MSO reading that led me to think I resurrected a demon; but the second round of MSO reading included Jeff Attwood's rather unflattering thoughts on the tag (or maybe more specifically [belongs-on-serverfault] - same meaning I think, though).
(Yes, "confuses" is mild. I am totally confused at this point!) :}
Bottom line, the SO [serverfault] tag I seem to have created(?) still exists but now has no questions tagged with it: should/would someone please delete it?
