I agree with you, but as I'm currently the only "active" mod (not active, really), I'll leave it open to collect some votes at least. And I hope that fresh new mod(s) will be willing to work on these ...

These tags look like a candidate for intrinsic tags. Intrinsic tags are term[s] that can apply to all questions on the site [...] Hopefully, this meta post can also function as a formal request ...

What is with the ground tags?

Grounding and Earthing are probably used interchangeably on this site and I agree they could be merged, possibly after looking at some statistics which I don't know how to do. I think there's a big ...
