The tags and seem to refer to exactly the same thing: comments that should be answers. Because of that, should be made a synonym of . It should not be the other way around because has a lot less questions and no tag wiki.

  • I was just thinking the same. Too bad it has been sitting here for almost a year with no progress at all. I doubt there is anyone with score 5 in either of these tags, seeing they are used sparsely. Only 23 and 6 questions respectively.

I have created the synonym as suggested.

I haven't merged the tags as yet.


"Answers as comments" seems ambiguous to me. Does it mean "answers being used as comments" (the content is a comment, but the post is an answer post) or does it mean "answers posted as comments" (the content is an answer, but the post is a comment post)? Both interpretations seem equally plausible.

Ideally, we should keep and and get rid of and .
