Proposal three: Blacklist or at least remove difference.
Does difference make a difference?
- It fits the perfect description of a meta tag. It describes the type of the question, not its content. It can't be the only tag on a question.
- The tag has a vague name in itself. One of the prerequisites of a [good] tag is having a name as clear as possible, without taking a good tag wiki into account. No matter how well this tag's wiki has been written, its name is vague and that's a very grave disadvantage.
- This tag is useless. It doesn't categorize anything. No one uses it for searching. It's just a means of adding more tags to a question.
- Even if you had some counterarguments for what I said above, you can't deny the fact that, with respect to the mere existence of tags like word-choice, transatlantic-differences, word-difference, synonyms and the "vs" tags, this tag is as redundant as it gets.
So, what do you guys say we blacklist or at least burninate it?
