I would suggest the synonym, but there aren't too many of these questions, and I don't have the required votes in the tags to suggest it. If someone else thinks it's a good idea, could they suggest it?

  1. Although I see kiamlaluno's distinction, that doesn't mean and are worth their own tags, considering the relatively few number of questions that we get about them and the considerable overlap between the two tags.

  2. I have created the tag synonym in the -> direction given that the latter is broader and already has more questions. but not yet merged the tags.

  3. If there are no further objections, I will merge the tags within the next day or two. The tags have been merged. If you have strong opinions against this, the merge and synonym can always be undone, but please make a good argument for it.

To me they don't seem to be always synonyms, as I could be polite without following a "customary code of polite behavior in society or among members of a particular profession or group."

  • Very fine line there, IMHO. Etiquette is almost always determined by politeness.
