# Are we supposed to be seeing tags that have been merged/synonym with other tags?

Under the tags tab there are tags such as that shows up but is a synonym of . Are we supposed to be seeing both there? It seems to make it a little difficult to navigate tags.

Probably just me, but I don't understand the need for the synonyms. If somebody starts typing swĭ she'll see switch and switches as suggestions. And instead of just having one clear tag for it, some people will choose switch and others switches. Can't we (automagically) edit the least preferred to the preferred one, so that we keep the number of tags under control? At least a warning about a deprecated tag would be nice.
I'm also thinking about the other question on tags where the example of D-class and class-D is given. Ideally it should be impossible to create one of them.
