    Do we feel that it is a good or a bad thing to have multiple tags denoting the same, or essentially the same, subfields in mathematics?

    My initial feeling is that it is not so good -- since there is a maximum number of five tags per post, including redundant tags is a loss of information, and if someone uses a proper subset of a redundant set, it makes it harder to search.

    I am thinking in particular of gn.general-topology and point-set-topology, which so far as I know are exactly the same thing.

    Bad. We have discussed this issue before here, where we learned that moderators can merge tags. This seems like a good candidate for merger.


    I've merged those. Let's move any further discussion to the other thread.
