I have been looking at tags and synonyms lately (can you tell?).

While the tags and may sound the same, they have very different meanings. Currently, (which means not moving) is a synonmym to (which means related to paper products).

I saw where the tags were made synonyms due to user confusion. I think this might lead to more confusion, especially by people who know the difference.

If the tags are split, we (or I) should update the description to match the definitions.

Using misspelling might work in website keywords for helping search engine optimization but should be correctly defined here in tags in a move to upgrade the quality of the site contributions by example. It mocks efforts to edit questions and answers for accuracy and clarity. It would be preferable to correct an incorrect tag when/if it occurs. – Stan Jul 28 '16 at 23:41
