When I see some of the questions tagged I always ask myself: Why is the OP limiting the answers to the one reporting a single word? Is there a practical reason for making single word requests, or the OP is just asking the question for amusement?

As the OP generally doesn't know if there is a single word that matches the criteria reported in the question, I think that the limit of a single word should be removed; thus, questions should not be tagged .

Request for phrases (including the phrases made of just a word) should not be accepted if:

  • There is not a practical reason behind asking that (as it should be with other questions)
  • The question is too generic, and it doesn't specify exactly the criteria that the requested phrase should match (the question is too generic)
  • The question is asking a synonym (or antonym) for a word when that synonym can be easily found in a dictionary

The second point should avoid situations where the OP doesn't describe too restrictive criteria, but then discard the suggested words for a non specified reason, such as "all words but that."
